If a driver is convicted of a motoring offence in the UK, his driving record might be endorsed with penalty points. Endorsements can stay on a driving record for 4 to 11 years, depending on the offence.

For practical reasons, the government has assigned a code to each offence. For a list of the conviction codes used in our application process,  ⬇️ please take a look below ⬇️.

Each of these codes can be narrowed down to fit specific situations. This is why the last number of the code might vary. The 0 would be replaced by a 2 to indicate Aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring offences, a 4 for Causing or permitting offences, and a 6 for Inciting offences.
