The following information pertains to Traffic Offences and codes which will appear on a drivers license. Although we have indicated the number of penalty points a driver will expect to receive for committing the offence as well as any disqualification or custodial sentence, we have not indicated the level of fine. There is (in most instances) a basic level of fine structured against most offences, but it must be recognised that it may be the case (if attending court) that mitigation may see the level of fine (possibly) reduced. Equally so, the courts have the power to impose larger fines subject to the individuals actions/responses whilst committing the offence.

Below are the headings under which each section of Offences are located, by clicking on any of these will take you directly to that section on this page.
