From next month, motorists who have accumulated half or more of the maximum allowable demerit points can remove three demerit points from their driving records, after attending a Safe Driving Course.
However, motorists can have the three demerit points cancelled only twice during their lifetime. The Traffic Police said the course is designed to correct dangerous driving behaviour and encourage good road habits.
Eligible motorists will receive notification letters from Nov 4. They can then register for the course at the three licensed driving schools. These are the Bukit Batok Driving Centre, ComfortDelGro Driving Centre and the Singapore Safety Driving Centre.
The course consists of a 3.5-hour theory session and a half-hour practical lesson under the supervision of a driving instructor. However, course fees vary across the different driving schools.
Those who choose not to attend the course will continue to have their demerit points on their record for the stipulated period.
