To be convicted of a DR40 offence you must be in charge of a vehicle whilst over the legal alcohol limit. The difference between a DR40 conviction and other drink driving codes is that you do not have to be driving the vehicle to be prosecuted, you only have to be inside it with your keys.
So if you’re caught ‘sleeping it off’ in your vehicle, and you’re over the legal limit, you could still receive a DR40 conviction.
How many penalty points does a DR40 conviction carry?
For a DR40 conviction, you’ll receive 10 points on your driving license.
Remember, if you accumulate 12 points or more on your license in a three year period, you’ll be banned from driving for at least six months.
A DR40 conviction will stay on your license for four years from the date of conviction.
What is DR40 insurance?
As with any drink driving offence, having a DR40 conviction means that you will be seen as a high risk category by insurance companies. This means that your insurance premiums will increase significantly.
In fact, some of the larger insurers might even turn you away when they see the conviction.
All's not lost though! If you take out a specialised DR40 insurance policy, you could save money on your premiums.
As tempting as it might be, never withhold information about your convictions while shopping for insurance. Failure to disclose relevant information on your insurance forms could result in your policy being deemed as invalid, and could even secure you another conviction.
