Default New driver excessive speeding 3 points, probation or prohibition?

I got an excessive speeding ticket 2 years ago when I first got my N license, disputed it and missed the court date this Tuesday. Now the ticket is in my driving record.

After that ticket, I'm driving safe from that time to now, no other points in my record.

Wondering if anyone knows excessive speeding 3 points will lead to a prohibition or just a probation? I called ICBC, one staff answered that I'm still fine until I have another ticket. Two other staffs saids I will most likely be suspended.

Anyone know please give me an answer!

Youll be fine, i got a notice in the mail last year cause i got too many points. Took like 3 months to register in the computer or somethin. I had to pay the $100 fee and write a letter to icbc stating why i shouldnt have my license suspended. I stated it was a single speeding ticket, a disturbing the peace (loud exhaust 3 points) (BS) and that i havent had a ticket since.
Never heard back from them and my license is still valid.
But on a serious note, dont speed, do 10 over the limit, not worth getting caught then going into panic mode and post in nasioc cause your mind is being destroyed by "what ifs"

License is freedom

I see. ICBC said excessive speeding will most likely cause my license to be suspended even I have only 3 points, that's why I'm confused in here.

After that ticket, I drive slow since. Now I'm an apprentice and that will cause me to lost my job.

Thanks for the reply!

if you don't get a letter from the super intintendent of motor vehicles you will be ok. You can pay off the points. If you get a letter you can try and dispute it by writing another letter but in the end it's up to the super intendent.

While I'm disputing, I'm still prohibited from driving, is that correct?

the only time you are prohibited is if you get a letter saying you are and you have to surrender your licence to icbc driver services or mail it in. Points don't mean **** till you get a letter saying your suspended. Or of course if the cops take your licence away lol but if you still have your licence in your hand and no letter you should be safe for now.

From ICBC's site..."If your driving record shows a high accumulation of penalty points within a two-year period, you will be identified for an administrative intervention. Generally, nine or more active penalty points (two points if you are a driver in the Graduated Licensing Program) on your record triggers the Driver Improvement Program. While penalty point infractions may be the most common trigger, intervention decisions take into consideration non-penalty point infractions as well.

Looks like you'll trigger the Driver Improvement Program. My gut feeling is that the Supt. will review your record, see nothing for the last two years and maybe send you a warning letter. I wouldn't get too worked up about it - what happens happens, and two good years is exactly what they want to see.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, after that ticket my record are clean after except failed to produce driver's license/insurance which is no point related.

I really hope I'm only in probation. 3 days now and still haven't any letter yet.

Just a quick question.

How long it takes the letter to mail in? I was lucky enough to have a class 5 booking next Wednesday. Will the letter arrive sooner than Wednesday?
