Specificities And Restrictions Of The Probationary Period

Six points instead of 12 on the driver’s license, this is a powerful motivation not to commit an offense that could cause the withdrawal of the consent. During the first months of the probationary period, a significant speeding and it is (already) finished.

Specific rules of conduct are also stricter for drivers on probationary periods:

The speed is limited to 110 instead of 130 km / h on the motorway, 100 instead of 110 km / h on the expressway and 80 on the roads limited to 90 km /h. Sanctions in case of overrun go from a simple fine of 68$ with the withdrawal of a point to 1 500$ penalty and removal of the permit.

The maximum permitted alcohol level is 0.2 grams per liter of blood, compared to 0.5 for other drivers. This corresponds to less than one milligram per liter of exhaled air, compared with 0.25 mg / l for experienced drivers. Sanctions can be up to 750$ fine, immobilization of the vehicle and withdrawal of the driving license.

“Good to know: the mandatory internship for loss of points

If a driver with a probationary license commits an offense causing him to lose 3 points or more, he must take part in an internship to collect his points, more precisely a road safety awareness course. This course can also be done voluntarily if the number of points lost is less than 3.”
