Driving Licence Points A Guide For Drivers



Driving Licence Points a Guide For Drivers


This guide has been prepared by Birmingham Driving School, and is intended to provide general information to help drivers to understand Driving Licence Points and to stay legal; whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date, it is not intended to be a legal guide.


Committing any motoring offence can result in receiving a penalty such as a fine, a ban from driving, being ordered to retake a driving test or imprisonment, and also points being added to your driving licence.


Examples of points for different offences:

Traffic Light Offences

3 points


Speeding

3 to 6 points


Driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence

3 to 6 points


Using a handheld mobile phone when driving

6 points


Failure to have proper control of a vehicle or full view of the road and traffic ahead

3 points


Using a vehicle in a dangerous condition

3 points in each case


Driving without insurance

6 to 8 points


Driving after refusal or revocation of licence on medical grounds

3 to 6 points


Driving while disqualified

6 points


Failing to stop after an accident or failing to report an accident

5 to 10 points


Driving while unfit through drink or drugs or with excess alcohol: or failing to provide a specimen for analysis

3 to 11 points

(if exceptionally not disqualified)


Careless and inconsiderate driving

3 to 9 points


Causing death by careless driving under the influence of drink or drugs

3 to 11 points

(if exceptionally not disqualified)


Dangerous driving

3 to 11 points

(if exceptionally not disqualified)


Causing death by dangerous driving

3 to 11 points

(if exceptionally not disqualified)


Totting Up Points


Any driver receiving 12 points in any 3 year period will receive a driving ban for a minimum of 6 months.


Newly Qualified Drivers And Points


Any driver accumulating 6 points within the first 2 years after passing their driving test will have their driving licence revoked.

They will have to apply for a provisional driving licence, only drive with a suitable accompanying driver and display L plates, and retake the theory and practical driving tests.


Any points already on the driving licence at the time of passing the driving test will count towards the 6 point total that would result in the driving licence being revoked.

If a driver already has 6 points on their driving licence before they pass the driving test, the licence is not immediately revoked, but any further points after passing the driving test will result in driving licence revocation.



Law and Documentation A Guide For Drivers


There are guides for drivers on various subjects regarding law and documentation relating to owning and using a car and to stay legal; whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date, they are not intended to be legal guides.
