Apologies in advance if this has already been answered - I did a search and couldn't find a definitive answer for this... My wife was driving along the Western Distributor towards the Anzac Bridge this morning and got pulled over for doing 79 in a 60 zone (save the obvious comments about speeding on that particular stretch of road) – 4 points and $216. She currently holds a P1 car license as well as an unrestricted motorcycle license (since 200. She's going to request leniency (which the officer issuing the fine suggested when he noticed the unrestricted R on her license) but frankly I don't think she'll get it because she hasn't held an unrestricted license for long enough... Which brings us to the question of suspension. Obviously she'll lose her P1 for 3 months, but does anyone know if she'll also have her motorcycle license suspended for the same period? I've gone and read the various pages on the RTA website and all the regs and it seems a little unclear. Also, when does the suspension for P plate speeding take effect from? I assume they send the letter out after you pay the fine, so is it possible to drag it out a bit with the leniency request + the payment period on the fine + a reminder notice? Any (helpful) thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
