It's a "snapshot" though. I can put my hand on my heart and say I have a completely clean licence but of course, it hasn't always been so! For me. this is just the right question at the right time!

I have, in the past had points on it (all for speeding, never anything else). Sometimes it has points on it, and sometimes it doesn't. Interestingly, I've never hurt anyone regardless of whether or not I've had points on my licence. I wonder if we could get a big enough sample whether it might show that people with points for speeding had killed / injured about the same number of people as those with none?

No points at the moment, years ago I got 3 points, and I wasn’t even driving. A friend borrowed one of my vans, he wasn’t on my insurance. We had both stupidly assumed his insurance would cover him, it didn’t.

£215 fine + points, I thought at the time we both got the same penalties. About 10 years later my mate told me he only got the fine. Oh how we laughed, not!.

I've evidently voted on this at some time in the dim and distant past. Points = 0, then and now (and, touch wood, thereafter. I don't think I'd handle points too well).

no points here, my licence isn't clean, there's a big coffee ring on it but don't think that counts

I too have no points. I had six points on my license when I was a young hooligan and rightly so. Both were given by real traffic police in speed traps.
