Where Have My Penalty Points Gone?


I was stopped by the police for speeding today. I was asked if I had points on my licence which I replied yes. I gave him my photocard licence (I didn’t have my paper licence) and he checked my details. He then told me that my licence was clear and therefore he would give me a fixed penalty notice and 3 points. I know I have points on my licence how can his check have come back clear? Thanks

Emma Says:

Penalty points are effective for 3 years and can be removed from your licence after 4.

How old do you think the points that you have are?

If you want to check then call the DVLA with your driver licence details and they will be able to tell you the precise picture in relation to your driving licence.
