Introduction

As a driver you start with zero demerit points. If you commit an offence that has a demerit point penalty, they are then added to your driving record.

If you reach or exceed the maximum demerit points allowable for your licence within a 3-year period, your licence will be suspended, or not renewed.

The demerit point check will display any active demerit points you've accrued within the last 3 years and 4 months. This is to allow time for any unpaid penalties, or penalties delayed due to appeal proceedings, to be added to your driving record. To learn more about how demerit points work, visit Demerit points.

You can check your demerit point balance online using your MyServiceNSW Account.

What you need

  • a MyServiceNSW Account. If your account is new or you haven't previously entered them, you'll also need:
    • your NSW driver licence details, or
    • the plate number of a vehicle registered in your name.

How to check

  1. Select the 'Check online' button.
  2. Log in, or create your MyServiceNSW Account. Enter your NSW driver licence or vehicle registration details if your account is new or you haven't previously entered them.
  3. Accept the Terms and Conditions.
  4. Review your demerit points record.
