    points on my license

    well as some of you can remember i had an accident back in september where my astra got wrote off , because of a Merc ploughing into the side of me, well yesterday i had to go to court as the police blammed me for the accident, saying that i was to blame due to the fact i crossed the path of the merc, the out come was i got 4 points and a £150 fine

    Does anyone know how long this will stay on my license for and how long i have to declare it to my insurance company

    Was just talking about this to my insurance company earlier in the week.
    Was told that the points are for 3 years, but cannot be removed from your licence until 5 years from the date of issue.
    My licence is currently away for renewal at present, so I will know in a week or two if that is true, as I have some from July '00 that I hope are removed.
