Limitations On Penalty Points

  • In the inspection and yard, you are allowed to lose 50 penalty points.
  • The road test allows you to lose 90 penalty points.

Failing one section whilst passing another will be disregarded and deemed as a fail of the complete test in other words, in total you can lose 140 points during the test, the problem is that if you lose more than 50 penalty points during the inspection but you pass the road test you will fail your test and vice versa.

Actions Which Will Result In Penalty Points

  • Actions which are performed unnecessarily such as needless stopping.
  • Actions which should have been done but which you neglected to perform.
  • Actions which are not performed satisfactorily like positioning the vehicle correctly for a turn.

Neglecting to perform actions or unnecessarily performing action might not cause you to immediately fail the test but you still have to be penalised.
