Q654: How many points will lead to a ban?
If you have had your licence for less than two years:
Under legislation covering new drivers, gaining six or more penalty points on your licence within two years of passing your test will lead to your licence being revoked. You will need to resit and pass the theory and practical driving tests in order to regain your full licence.
If you have had your licence for more than two years:
Twelve points or more on your licence may lead to disqualification from driving. The Court will decide on the length of any disqualification.
Having penalty points on your driving licence may affect your insurance costs and employment.
