Got flashed the other day so waiting for the ticket to come through. I'll be expecting 3 points and £60 slip. My insurance is up for renewal in the next few weeks and I'm doing everything I can to renew my policy before the points are put on my license.
Then I thought today - if points are put on a license while a policy is held, can they charge you more there and then or can they only charge you more at renewal? I've had a look around the net and people say different things.
Also, part of my job is driving one of the vehicles and if any points are on my license, the vehicle can't be driven. Now I'd rather have a £500 fine than points, but I know that won't happen. Has anyone had any luck in arguing a case against being given points and received an alternative punishment?
- Comments concerning "shouldn't have sped then should you" or "didn't you see the big yellow box" will be highly appreciated and taken on board.
