If you commit a motoring offence in the UK, your driving license will be endorsed with appropriate number of penalty points. Any penalty points incurred are valid for a 3 year period from the date the conviction was given, but must stay on the license for an additional twelve months.
The length to time in which penalty points on your driving license last depends on the type of offence. For more serious offences, the endorsement begins on the date of conviction, and for others on the date of the offence. If the offence is drinking or drugs and driving, then the endorsement must stay on your driving licence for eleven years from date of conviction. If the offence is reckless/dangerous driving, then the endorsement must stay on your driving licence for four years from the date of conviction.
