How long do points on a licence last?

This can vary, as not all motoring convictions stay on your licence for the same amount of time, this will depend on the severity of the conviction. The majority of points will stay on your licence for 4 years, but the more serious ones can stay on your licence for up to 11 years. You will find that most convictions surrounding drink and drug driving will stay on your licence for 11 years, as well as convictions for causing death by careless driving. If you are still unsure how long your penalty points will stay on your licence, you can give us a call and one of our knowledgeable members of staff can answer that question for you. 


How can I get penalty points removed from my licence?

You do not need to do anything, penalty points will automatically be removed from your licence once they have expired. 


Can I do anything to lower my insurance premium if I have points?

You may not find insurance as cheap as you would have before you received penalty points, but there are certain things you can do to keep the price as low as possible. How insurers will decide on a premium depends on many factors, which does include your driving history, but it also includes what vehicle you drive, your address, where you park your car and many others. There are a few things that you can do to try and lower your car insurance cost, one thing to do is lower the mileage, or if you usually drive to work, you could find another way to go to and from work and you won’t need to insure your car for commuting. A factor that you can control which would have one of the biggest impacts, is to make sure you are driving a car that is one of the cheapest to insure, all cars are put into insurance groups, the lower the group, the cheaper it is to insure. We have written a blog about the cheapest cars to insure. 


How do penalty points affect insurance?
