Penalty points (endorsements)
The courts can fine you and ‘endorse’ your driving record with penalty points if you’re convicted of a motoring offence.
Endorsements must stay on your driving record for 4 or 11 years, depending on the offence.
The endorsement and penalty points are put on your driver record. View your driving licence record to see what penalty points you have and when they’ll be removed.
Endorsement codes and processes in Northern Ireland are different.
