    "Totting-up" penalty points

    If you build up 12 or more penalty points within a period of three years, you'll be liable to be disqualified under the "totting-up" system. This is shown on your licence as TT99.

    Information on your driving entitlement and endorsements are sent to the courts and police on request.

    For every offence which carries penalty points the court has a discretionary power to order the licence holder to be disqualified, fined and imprisoned. This may be for Obligatory or Discretionary periods the court thinks fit under court guidelines - HERE
