I have received an “Options Letter” from VicRoads – What do I do?

If you have incurred 12 or more demerit points within a 3 year period, VicRoads will send you an “Options Letter” asking you if you would like to enter into a demerit point bond, or whether you would prefer to immediately serve a 3 month licence suspension period. A demerit point bond allows you to continue driving, but if you commit any further offences within the following 12 months, you will lose your licence for 6 months. This option is often useful for individuals who require their car to carry out their employment or for other compelling reasons.
You can dispute that you have incurred 12 or more demerit points within 3 years and, if successful, you may be able to avoid entering into a demerit point bond or losing your licence.
