School zones

Certain driving and parking offences attract an additional demerit point if committed in an operating school zone.

School speed zones operate on all notified school days, including school development days. See the NSW Centre for Road Safety website for information about when school zones are in force.

School zones and double demerits

Double demerit points can also apply when school zones are in operation during holiday periods.

If you commit a speed, seatbelt or helmet offence during this combined period, the demerit point value applying for the school zone will be doubled.
