List of UK driving licence endorsements

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

UK driving licences may be endorsed by order of the courts if the driver has been convicted of an offence concerned with driving or operating a vehicle.[1] An endorsement may also be accompanied by a number of points which can remain on the licence for up to 11 years.[2] If the total of points on a licence equals or exceeds 12, the courts may decide to ban a driver for a period of time. The list below, does not apply to Northern Ireland, see website below. However, 'Mutual recognition' (MR) codes have been included as these are added to your driving record if you’re disqualified whilst driving in Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. Your disqualification period will also be valid in GB and will stay on your record for 4 years from the date of conviction.
