Department for Transport written question – answered on 18th May 2021.
Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 29 April (HL15320), how many times the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency revoked the driving licence of a driver who reached 12 points on their driving licence in each of the last 10 years.
Only a court can disqualify an individual from driving under the “totting up” provisions whereby a driver can be disqualified by accruing 12 or more penalty points. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s role is to update the drivers' database with endorsement information received from courts.
The table below shows the number of totting up disqualifications since 2017. Information is not available for the full period requested as endorsements are removed from drivers’ records after set periods of time in line with the requirements set out in law. As such, records for 2017 and 2021 are partial years.
