Penalty Points Hand Written Onto Licence

Question:

Hey Emma, I got caught speeding and sent my licence off to receive the 3 points. However, when I received my paper licence back the endorsement had been written on in biro.

Someone told me they have to be printed on. Does this mean the 3 points can be wiped off my licence? Thanks

Emma Says:

I’m afraid they are perfectly entitled to hand write on the endorsements. A central record is kept at the DVLA.

The courts do it all the time when cases are dealt with by way of a hearing.

Sorry you wont be able to get the penalty points erased.
