Hi

 

My friend has 12 points on his licence and had his exceptional hardship plea accepted and he had the following

 

3 points for wrong direction July 2012

3 points for mobile phone Nov 2012

6 points for Speeding (SP30 i think) Dec 2012

 

I undertand 3 points are physically removed after 4 years, but off the record really after 3 years.

 

Please explain what this means, so the first 3 are removed already as its been 3 years now what about the rest?

 

Thanks!

Driving licence 'points' run from the Date Of Offence (not the date of conviction) and are valid for 3 years from the DOO and are physically removed from the driver record after 4 years from the DOO (DDxx and certain other offences excluded)

 

Given the list above...

 

3 points from July 2012. No longer in force, will be removed from the driver record in July 2016.

3 points from Nov 2012. Still in force until XX November 2015, will be removed from the driver record in Nov 2016

6 points from Dec 2012. Still in force until XX December 2015, will be removed from the driver record in Dec 2016

 

They had a busy year!

 

Effectively, you, sorry, your friend has 9 current points.

In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.

Btw the 6 points do they all come off at once or is it 3 years per 3 points??

The 6 points for speeding in Dec 2012 will all be removed together.

Just remember, in this case, points do not mean prizes

I think that you should tell your friend to grow up

Bare in mind that for some crazy reason your friend will have to declare the points to the insurance for 5 years.

Even if the points are removed, they now have access to a common database and they will know that you have not answer correctly to the 5 years question

This is true, but note that under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act most motoring convictions take 5 years to become spent - even though the endorsement may be removed from your licence sooner than that. This is why most insurers ask if you've had any convictions in the last 5 years. So the "Friend" will have to keep declaring all the convictions until July 2017.

Thanks for that link mikeymack.

 

So his points expire 3 years from the date of offence, so he has 6 points currently and the other 6 will be removed before the end of the year, just as someone else said earlier.

 

As for me, I also checked my licence.....and luckily my points have all gone as its 3 years since the date of offence and luckily not the date of conviction (which is 8 months after!!)

 

Thanks!
