Penalty Point Accumulation

Penalty Point Accumulation

A number of motoring offences carry fixed penalty points. You would be notified at the outset of your case if this applied to your circumstances.

If your case does not carry a fixed penalty notice the penalty points can range from 2-10 and in some cases immediate disqualification.

If you are a new driver and accumulate 6 penalty points within the first 2 years of passing your driving test, your licence will be revoked (and you would, after any disqualification have to resit your test). If however you have held a licence in excess of two years and receive 12 penalty points over a period of 3 years you will be disqualified. This is often referred to as a "totting up" ban.

We understand that this can impact your work, your home life and even your home itself. We have a proven track record in reducing the length of the ban. If you are unsure of the penalty the offence may carry or are at risk of disqualification please do not hesitate to contact our Motor Defence team to discuss your case.
