    • Accumulating 12 points in 12 months or 18 points in 24 months requires the mandatory suspension or revocation of the driving privilege.

  • I would like to claim responsibility for a ticket that was issued to another person because I was at fault.

    • Please fill out the claiming responsibility form in our forms tab on this website.

  • I received a temporary suspension due to expired vehicle documents and my SOFA license was taken by the MP, how can I get my license back?

Before we are allowed to release your SOFA license back, you would need to update your JCI/GOJ/PDI/ROAD TAX (whichever applies to you).  Another option would be to JUNK your vehicle and you would just provide proof of that as well.

If you plan to "junk" your car, you would just deregister your vehicle and provide the junk certificate to us.
