    Q654: How many points can I have on my licence before I face a ban?

    Twelve penalty points on your licence within 3 years will mean that you face disqualification under the 'totting up' procedure.

    If you have 9 or more penalty points on your licence then you cannot accept any further fixed penalty tickets and must go to court.

    For further information see Q368 (how long penalty points last) and Q713 (penalty points for newly qualified drivers)
