Statement of offence

Legal consequences of payment

a. Legal consequences of payment in full not accompanied by a plea

If you opt to pay the full amount of the fine appearing on the ticket, you will be deemed to have entered a guilty plea and a judgement is deemed to have been rendered upon receipt of this payment.

b. Changing your plea

Should you subsequently decide to change your plea, you must file an appeal with the Superior Court.

c. Updating your driving record−demerit points

Whatever demerit points may apply to your alleged offence under the Highway Safety Code will be automatically entered into in your driving record, since the Court will notify the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec of its judgement.
