Cycling – Losing Points
Is It possible to lose points on your licence when cycling?
Latest rumour amongst expats – Is it true you have to wear Hi-Viz jacket whilst riding a bicycle and if you don’t, you will be fined and points on your driving licence. Is this yet ANOTHER “urban myth”??
- What do you think about this matter?. True or False
It is false, the Traffic Department can only take points off a driving licence if you have got one, so if the law does not force you to have a licence to ride a bicycle, this is not possible.
To ride a bicycle, you do not need a driving licence, it would be unfair to lose points only for those who have a licence.
Moreover we can post an article about the traffic offences which make you lose points, if you have doubts please have a look on it.
- When do you have to wear the Hi-Viz jacket in your bicycle?
– At night (between sunset and sunrise)
– In bad weather conditions when the visibility is reduced.
