Comments Off on Can I Hire a Car With Points on My Licence?
Traffic rules are strictly enforced for safety reasons.
Most accidents that occur could have been prevented if both parties had paid more attention to the road and followed traffic laws. If you exceed the speed limit or drive carelessly, you put yourself and others on the road in danger.
Any of these actions will likely get you pulled over by law enforcement. If that happens, you will be fined and get a point added to your licence for violating traffic results. The extent of both largely depend on how serious the violation is. A penalty for drink driving will be much harsher than barely going over the speed limit.
Here is a list of common demerit point offences in Western Australia:
Speeding over the limit: 2 to 20 points depending on how much you go over
Driving without a seatbelt: 11 points
Using a mobile phone while driving: 8 points
Failure to yield to a pedestrian crossing: 8 points
Running a red light: 6 points
Failure to stop at a stop sign: 6 points
In either case, it is important to adhere to adhere to all traffic rules when driving. A single offence won’t likely hurt you too much but get too many of them and you could lose your licence. If you have any minor traffic offences on your licence, one question you might have is whether that will affect your ability to rent a car.
Not being able to could throw a wrench into your holiday plans if you plan to rent. Here are additional details about renting a car with demerit points on your licence.
Hiring a Car With Demerit Points
Rental agencies understand that many motorists don’t have perfect scores on their licence.
But as long as you still have an active licence with only minor offences on your record, then you should still be able to hire a car without any problems. If you are still worried, the best course of action is to simply call ahead of time to ask. Explain your situation and the agent will be able to help you over the phone and check whether you can rent a car.
However, it may be harder to rent a car for more serious offences such as drink driving or driving without insurance. The reason is simply because you are perceived as a threat but there are usually some exceptions though. For example, if either of these offences occurred many years ago and your record has been clean since then, you may still be able to rent a car without any issues.
If you are not sure if you can hire a car in Perth, simply give us a call and we will be happy to help. Be sure to let us know briefly about your driving record and whether you have had any offences over the last few months. If they are nothing serious then you can likely still be able to rent a car from us without any problems.

Just had a 5 week hire of a Landcruiser Sahara. Excellent customer service and very helpful. Great experience, would definitely recommend!
Great staff and highly organised, had our bus out for us before we arrived. Worked in with us regarding our return time. Owner of the business dropped us off at the airport. Can’t wait to return to Perth so I can use Ace Car Rentals Victoria Park again. Thank you guys.Sophie Curlewis Yass
I could not recommend these guys highly enough. Very reasonable prices compared to others around Perth. Cars are always very clean, and the staff are super friendly. I always use them while Im in Perth and look forward to seeing them again soon.
My experience was incredibly wonderful. I didn’t have to worry about travel and my children loved the car and it was breeze. The customer service exceeds any service I’ve received from a car hire service in the world. I highly recommend this service to everyone! Go directly to ACE RENT A CAR!!! It’s worth it. Lee
The best car rental company I have ever rented with through all my travels- friendly staff, new clean cars and amazing prices (the best in market from my study on pricing in perth). Will hire with them every time Ofcourse!
Awesome! We rented a car for 3 days. Price was cheap for a quality car. Staff very friendly and helpful, couldn’t get a better service! Definetly will go back.Highly recommended to anyone that wants to rent a car.
I arrived in perth on a limited budget only to find my car was still Darwin and another three weeks to arrive,Ace rented myself a hyundai at what must be the lowest priced rental I've ever had,it helped me greatly and didnt hiry my budget to badly and all i had to do was advise by text to continue renting until my car eventually tirnrd up.Highly recommend their services and if stuck again will be the first place to turn to.
6 adults (all 6foot plus) 150kgs of luggage, many kms over 12 days.The imax was perfect drives good clean and so much room for long legs and baggage.Lovely customer service.Will recommend highly to friends and family.
Extremely competitive pricing and great service staff! From the booking enquiries to the physical collection of the car, it has a been great experience throughout. The free shuttle provided to and from Perth Airport is a big big plus! Everyone should really consider Ace for their rentals. Will be recommending to all my friends!
Such an outstanding organization! Everything they promised, they delivered. And the price/value beats every other company I researched to rent a car. I will recommend them to family and friends and will always use their business whenever the need arises. Thank you Ace Rent A Car!
Friendly staff, great service, clean and reliable car. I rented through this company twice in a fortnight, best value on car rental that I could find and a quick and easy booking process both online and over the phone! Would highly recommend and will definitely use this company again myself!!
Came down from England and Just hired a Hyundai for 3 weeks at Perth Albany Victoria Park office of Ace Rent A Car, just a km away from where I was staying. The staff are very friendly and the cost of the 3 weeks was the cheapest in the market with a brand new car. I travelled mostly to the south of Perth down to Albany after a week sight seeing in the area places like Denmark Walpole national park some of the taller trees in Australia, Stirling Range National Park I travelled across the wrist belt to wave rock and back. The car handled the bad roads I travelled North to the Pinnacles in the three weeks. Travelled some 3000 km. I did extra km worth 230$ but instead of charging me extra 0.28$ each km, they saved me the extra buck by only charging a 110$ by changing my km range. Very kind of them. Not greedy and believe in making relationships. Professional and helpful and very good lot of them.I will hire from them always on my trips to Perth and will suggest you all to also hire from them without worries on your holiday.
Booked a car over the christmas period. Everything you could ask for, quick efficient quality service. Although not a big name brand, I will have no worries about using Ace cars again if I ever need a rental car in Perth.
This is one of the best rental car experiences I have had hands down. I walked in and felt right at home. They were upfront about everything and even saved me some money with the miles. I would highly recommend this car company to anyone in Perth. I returned the car and they gave me many options to return. I have rented cars at a lot of places, with a lot of companies, and this one takes the cake.
We have rented a mini bus for 12 days to go around Pinnacles down to the Great Southern Region (Walpole, Denmark), WA. The mini-bus they provided us is almost new, clocking around 130 km. The vehicle is clean inside out. The best per day rate and service in the area! and nothing beats the kind gestures of the boss to discount me for the excess kilometers that I clock! 5/5 due to service, rate and vehicle conditions.
I came to visit Perth from the UK and needed a car ace were highly recommended by friends and they did not disappoint at all.The guys were friendly, knew their stuff and were very helpful nothing was too much trouble.The car was great to drive and comfortable we enjoyed it without any problems at all.The main reason we had them recommended was they are so reasonable and that was also the case.In other word 1st class service I will use again and I recommend to anyone who wants a car
Our car was Cheap and Good quality!!Unfortunately we made a problem by an accident. I didn't speak English well but they tried to understand me and dealt it quick. We had a big holiday. They gave us another car so we can get it. We were very thankful. They're so kind and gentle!!
Great cars along with great service, I choose these guys every time I visit Perth. Easy booking system, Friendly & very helpful staff. All modern, nice, clean vehicles.5 Star !Thanks Ace Rent a Car- See you next year ! ;))
Wow, what an experience! My wife and I pre-booked a van hire today and could not be more satisfied.We only required the vehicle for two separate days, so not exactly a million dollar contract. (Their prices were extremely reasonable) and Commercial Services Director Ajay, completely understood our needs and patiently and professionally took us through the process - all in the space of ten minutes. We have used this company in the past and can't praise them highly enough.The very best customer service!
I really satisfied with ace. Recently i rent a 12seater commuter bus and a hyundai accent. Both are smooth.. Dealing with the staff satisfy me well. I just connect with them via fb messenger.it so easy.once u settle the dealing, they will sent you a quotation email and just click the link given once you have confirmed. Of course i will comeback and rent with them because the vehicles served is very comfortable and smooth.. Thanks ace.. See you again.
Chose Vic Park agency online on basis of reviews and proved to be a very wise choice. Ajay could not have been more helpful both at delivery and upon return. Little Toyoto did the job for two seniors and two big cases. Why stick with the multi-nationals when you can get service (with a smile) and great value from the smaller owner-operators? Many thanks Ace.
