Driving Law Count Down #3 Displaying P plates
Barron & Allen Lawyers Mackay are passionate about cars and want to keep our car enthusiasts up to date on the law. Here is #3 of our Top 10 driving law count down. #3 Displaying P plates – P1 & P2 drivers must display a P plate while driving. Unfortunately, demerit points loss of licence is easily caused by an accumulation of points for failing to display P plates. It’s 2 points and a $213 fine for not displaying a clearly legible P plate. What’s clearly legible? Displayed so the letter P can be clearly seen at the front and back of the car (rear only for motorcycles) from 20 metres away. There are also rules about the size and colour of the P plate sign. A word of caution for P platers to be careful of displaying P plates on the back window with dark tinting, as this may result in police saying the sign cannot be clearly seen from 20 metres away. Please like and share, and keep an eye out for No. #2.
