What is a totting up ban?

A totting up ban is the term used for when a motorist has a build up of penalty points on their licence from numerous motoring offences.

The majority of motoring offences result in penalty points on your driving licence.  If you get 12 or more penalty points in any three year period, you are liable to a totting up driving ban.

How long does totting up ban last?

The length of your totting up ban can vary depending on how serious the court deems the offence to be.

You could receive a driving ban if you already have 12 or more penalty points on your licence. Your ban could last for 6 months or more if you get 12 or more penalty points within 3 years.
