Top Twenty Penalty Points Holders

Man Collects Forty-Five Points

A motorist with forty-five penalty points is the most prolific offender on England and Wales' top twenty table, DVLA freedom of information request data shows. Drivers typically receive a ban once they have twelve points - six if inexperienced – but might avoid suspension if they prove it would cause excessive hardship.

The offender is a male from Liverpool who has been penalised on three occasions for speeding in a thirty mile per-hour zone, and a further five for failing to provide information to the authorities.

Drivers Collecting Points Despite Not Having Licence

Second position is a male from Lewisham that has forty points - despite not having a full or provisional licence. His offences include speeding and driving without insurance. The top twenty includes two other non-licence holders: a male with thirty-three points from Stockport, and a male with twenty-eight from Leeds.

I'm sure most of us have tried the rest (voting)often and were worse off now than we were decades ago...UKIP for me from now on.

if someone is caught driving with no licence, banned or no insurance, what is the point of giving them more points or even banning them as they will just carry on like they were when they were caught. they need a custodial sentence and their vehicle taken off them.

I wholeheartedly agree with every email posted here. It seems to me that these comments typify the views of the British people. Why then are our views always ignored? The same goes for immigration and capital punishment Government is supposed to reflect the will of the people. Which of the twits appealing for our vote have the courage to sort this mess out. None - I fear! I fear. vote slightest intention of chang

Should be 12 points and lose your licence no matter why

Serial offenders in the roads are like smokers.....they are always going to speed & take risks on the road, it's a habit, a very bad habit.....but what do we do when someone has a bad habit? ...we feed it, we invent terms such as"hardship" to use as a loophole! You think I care if you lose your job by speeding on a 30zone endangering a child's life? No! But it seems the powers that be do...why? Just like the smokers a habit is a cash cow to the system!

Can’t take any driving law seriously. When you don’t have to speak English to get a licence

I thought that being caught without insurance meant an automatic seizure and destruction of the vehicle involved. Perhaps some police authorities consider this to be merely an advisory punishment and hand it back after payment of a token fine!

Bish Dish, you should have been sent to the gallows :-)

I was Transport Manager for a large plant hire company and every day we got Impending prosecution notices in from all over the U.K. One was for a female rep who got her picture taken twice on the same stretch of road within 5 mins, but going in the opposite direction. The most amusing was a parking ticket from a London borough which turned out to be a forklift truck which had never been outside of a factory in Cardiff for all of its 5 year life. Its reg number was on a black VW golf which had amassed a lot of fines in different parts of London.

What does "excessive hardship" mean if someone tots up 12points why shouldn't they be banned. It's usually some celebrity pleading that they have to get to work!. They can get a taxi or use the bus like us ordinary people have to, they know the rules when they totted up their points and should be treated like anyone else.

What a total mess our society is in when people routinely flout the law in the way described, why waste time passing laws without meaningful penalties to stop the worst offenders

Been banned 9 times on provisional, 2 times on full UK, now I've leant my lesson, been driving risk free for over 13 months and counting, I'm all legal now, it's the best way, even when I'm stopped its good to drive away happy knowing I'm driving within the law of the land 👅

How on earth can someone with no licence receive penalty points ???? I would have thought a hefty fine and having the car taken away and crushed would be rather more of a deterrent for cases like this. What sort of a deterrent is having points added to a non-existent, or already revoked, licence ?
