Endorsements & Disqualifications

If you are convicted of a motoring offence, then in addition to paying a fixed penalty or fine, the court may endorse your driving licence with a penalty ranging from three to eleven points or even order a period of disqualification from driving.

In this section, you'll find a guide to the range of penalty points that you can occur for a variety of offences, including details of how to remove expired endorsements from your licence. There's also information on renewing your licence after disqualification, along with the facts about the extended practical driving test that some disqualified drivers may need to take.
