What happens if I get out-of-province demerit points?

If you have been convicted of a driving offence in another Canadian province, the State of New York or Michigan, demerit points will be added to your driving record just as if the offence happened in Ontario.

Traffic offences outside Ontario that will add demerit points:

  • speeding
  • failure to obey a stop sign
  • failure to obey a signal light
  • failure to stop for a school bus
  • racing
  • failing to remain at or return to the scene of an collision
  • careless driving

Criminal offences outside Ontario that will result in a suspension:

  • vehicular manslaughter
  • criminal negligence
  • dangerous driving
  • failure to remain at the scene of a collision
  • impaired driving
  • driving while disqualified or prohibited
