While the distribution of Counterpart Driving Licence (DLC) continues in the police stations of the country, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure has set the date of April 1 for entry into force of penalty points.
Thus, motorists must necessarily have their licenses and existing DLC to circulate on our roads.
Under the Penalty Points System (PPS), the points awarded for an offense remain in force for a period of three years. Holder will permit "normal" and it is only committing offenses that points will be attributed. However, it should not exceed the limit of 15 points, otherwise the license will be canceled.
