    Well... I had no points on my licence up until a few weeks ago, then BAM! 6 points, and it certainly makes you think twice before planting the loud pedal for thrills.
    Maybe it's time for me to get that A2 I've been thinking about.

    How long ago was that?

    You do know that 'new' drivers who have had their license for less than 18 months(?) only need 6 points for a ban...

    How many points/fine is it for doing 93 in a 60?

    And if I never go back to Bakersfield California, do I need to bother?

    Well I go back to zero in June,almost hit nine though last year as twice went through a Camera at, well lets just say a little over the limit!
    Did get a scare last year when a car had an accident in front of me. It almost hit me and when I jumped out to help there was nothing we could do but watch the guy die.
    Definately made me slow down a lot. Note to everyone on here it only takes a second and it's all over (lesson over)

    I'm clean but did once collect 3pts back in 1997 (for doing 41 in a 30). Caught by a mobile device operated by a lone police officer. Some of my mates said I should have carried on driving (he was flagging me down from the opposite side of the road) as it would be his word against mine. Wisely I think, despite the £40 it cost me, I decided to stop ...

    I'm clean too, but a m8 is "sitting on 12" which means he has the 12 points but no ban as he needs the use of a vehicle for work. it does mean he gets a full ban on his next offence though!

    He's such a dummy that he got done off the same fixed camera 3 times in 2 months???? now you would have thought he'd have learnt not to speed past that spot after the first time wouldn't ya? Muppet!

    he's just got himself a 90 quattro and i can see that ban coming!!!!!!

    You do know that all of you saying zero are seriously tempting fate!

    I don't want to say how many points I have as I don't want to tempt fate. (if you know what I mean)

    Driving for 23 years too!

    what made me slow down was having my lisence revoked

    over here in northern ireland (dont know if its the same as the mainland), if you gather up 6points in your first 2 years of driving your lisence is revoked and you have to do your test again as well as your theory

    i was cold turkey from driving for only 2weeks from the day i got the letter before i redid my test again - quite pointless really

    i told my examiner my situation and that i really needed my car for work and uni etc... and he only gave me a minor lol

    the downsight was, again over here for your first year of driving you are restricted to 45mph and you have to display a dirty looking "R" sticker on the windows.

    lesson learned i think

    No points, but did get a year ban for drink driving 13 years ago.

    Wasn't even old enough to drink at the time.

    9 points (actually got caught for, and should have had, 21 points in total - but got away with lots of them - not proud of this, but very relieved at the time)
    But they are all 3yrs old around June this year so can have them removed around June next year.

    All in the car - none on the bike.

    3yrs ago it felt as though the dvla had my licence more often than i did.
    I also think the staff at the safety camera partnership scheme head office thought they were actualy a penpall of mine with all the letters i kept receiving.
    When your tinkering that close to a totting up ban you learn to drive differently.
