Doing the three hour in-house course allows a P-plater to no longer have to display a P-plate on their car and to have an extra four points added to their demerit point allowance. For the same $91.75 fee, P-plate drivers over 26 just pay the fee and they are also exempt from having to display a P-plate and also have four demerit points added to their allowance.
