Driver allowed to keep licence despite having THIRTY SIX penalty points

A Wednesbury motorist who failed to identify the driver of their vehicle to the police six times after alleged offences has been allowed to keep their licence despite accruing six points for each offence.

The figure is three times the 12 point mark normally needed to trigger a ban.

Magistrates have the discretion over whether to waive a ban after 12 points have been accrued, but only in situations where a defendant demonstrates 'exceptional hardship' that would be caused by not being allowed to drive.

Individual driving offences lead to between one and 11 points being given by the courts. Death by dangerous driving carries between three and 11 points.
