Motorist gains 40 penalty points without ever having a full or provisional driving

A motorist from Lewisham, London, has racked up 40 points for 12 driving offences despite never holding a full or provisional driving licence. The total makes him the second highest penalty points holder ever in England and Wales.

A man from Liverpool still holds the record for the most number of points, with a shocking 45 penalty points on a full driving licence.

IAM chief executive Sarah Sillars said: “It’s been three years since the IAM raised this issue with the DVLA, but we still have drivers on the road with multiple points allocated to them. Now we discover that some of them have never held any kind of driving licence. We all have to share the road with these unqualified, uninsured and dangerous drivers.”

“We need to punish offenders as well as give them the opportunity to change their ways. Offenders are unlikely to drive legally if they face a ban or points on their licence as soon as they pass their test.”
