Not so much as how to get points removed, but how do you know how many you have?? I was recently renewing my car insurance and I came to the section where I had to fill in details of previous convictions. So, I went to where I thought my paper counterpart was, and there it was - gone! I duly searched and after a while decided it was gone forever so I phoned a nice man at the DVLA. I explained my situation, and he promised me that he would send a duplicate piece of paper in exchange for Â£21. F***ing outrageous, I thought, but whatever. I asked him if he could give me details of my previous 'form' over the phone so that I could continue with my insurance application, which he then did. (still with me?) Thing is, he told me that I had 6 points, and gave me details of those two convictions (speed cameras in Devon - *******). I told him then that I believed that I had a further speed camera conviction - I vaguely remembered sending my paper counterpart to Cumbria County Court in Carlisle, and I was pretty sure that I had paid Â£60 quid and received my counterpart back with an additional 3 points on it. I had only a vague recollection of these events because they happened in December 05. (16th to be precise - Mam's birthday). Anyway - to cut to the chase - DVLA man said that if its not on the DVLA database, then according to the Law (and insurance firms) it never happened. He went further to add that this happens quite a lot, as the County Courts are so over-burdened with speed camera convictions that they often 'forget' to inform the DVLA that they have applied points to a person's licence. The next week I received my new counterpart licence, with two convictions from the Devonshire mafia and f'all else. Result. I just thought I would share this wee story with my fellow RR members, and encourage you all (or those with points, at least) to give the DVLA a call to check that the DVLA has registered those convictions that you have received for breaking the law, just as I did.
