at risk of getting 7N licence suspended?

Pulled over first time. Cop gave me tickt for not displaying N sign.

Pulled over second time, I got a ticket for changing solid lane and not dispalying N sign. Disputed at ICBC, no mail for court date yet.

Pulled over third time. Cop gave me ticket for using bus lane. Disputed at ICBC, no mail for court date yet.

So I was pulled over 3 times, and 4 total tickets (2x not displaying N sign, changing solid lane, using bus lane). None of these tickets had points, they were all minors, so what's going to happen now...

don't know much about the licensing in BC, but i think you should be fine... a friend of mine had his license suspended because he was caught speeding 2 times within a year with an N, so... seeing as how they haven't really mentioned any sort of suspension, and that you wer e able to dispute most of your tickets... i think you'll be fine.

What is your question? Did you get a letter in the mail or anything?

You have zero points right now, why are you worried.... and why are you outlining why you weren't at faul every single time as if that woudl change anything...

actually you are allowed to dispute any ticket.

by dispute I mean I went to ICBC to "dispute" the ticket. I was told I will recieve mail in 6 months to 1 year with the court date.

I edited my post so you know what I'm trying to get answered.

but as things stand right now, after court and if lets say I pay all the tickets for being guilty, would that threaten my licence?

I mean the tickets aren't like drunk driving, speeding... just small traffic violations + not displaying N sign twice.

hmm same story of someone I know, but they were going 190k on a highway in Kelowna. This was a couple years ago, and got suspended for 3 months.

But since mine are all minors, I should be good I assume...


+ radar detector = 1 speeding ticket cost. Totally worth it

I was told from a cop (after I got pulled over in my N days) that it only takes 3 points to lose your N

either way if you really wanna avoid it then dispute everything and when the court date comes send a reply asking for an extension cause you are leaving the country or something.

I did that once and did have to show up in court for 1 year+

I know wasted time and money but I was young and afraid and clearly stupid but I got away

when you get a ticket, you're getting CHARGED with a violation. You are innocent until proven guilty.

That gets determined in a court of law.

Now if you get CONVICTED (found guilty through evidence or plea) then the points and fees apply. Until then, you have no points of fees against you or your license. yet.

Those charges I would just dispute them. Call not guilty.

The officer will most likely talk to you before courte to coerce you into admitting it. Just politely decline, and say not guilty.

Officer will most likely plead no evidence.

^^ that said, before the OP edited his post, he has already admitted that he was ACTUALLY guilty of all the violations. Of course it's too late as he's past the early bird discount, but why dispute? It's not like these violations carry points...

Why would the officer say he has no evidence?!

He most likely has notes on what happened and will present it in court.

"so what's going to happen now... "...you're probably going to be riding BC Transit soon if you don't change your driving habits. You can get 2 points for not displaying the N if the Cop decides to charge you with driving contrary to restrictions (which he can for no N) ...and with 1 VT already for no N I forsee that happening next time.

Points just give them a flag... they can still look at your record and decide to suspend you if they think you're a road hazard.

I thought the officer doesn't show up, it's just the notes or ticket that the judge has... not that it matters that's just what I thought.

there's a lot more behind ticket 2 and 3, that's why they were disputed.

I don't know if heavy traffic, or saying "i needed to pass a truck so i drove in the bus lane" would get you out of the ticket.

The cop has to be there to present his evidence... if he doesn't show, the charges are dropped.

IMO it should be 4 points.

Ya, 3 points for 2 years. I've been pulled over roughly 5-7'ish times with my N... Had it displayed once? Never had a ticket for it haha.

"Not Displaying N sign" doesn't have any points I think ^


and speeding is either 2 or 3 points... speeding is speeding, I don't think there's really a point to dispute that.
