If you hold a G1, G2, M1 or M2 licence, and are convicted of distracted driving, you’ll face the same fines as drivers with A to G licences. But you won’t receive any demerit points. Instead of demerit points you’ll face longer suspensions: 30 days first offence, 90 days second offence, third offence cancellation of your licence!
