UK Driving Offence Codes
Each and every driving offence in the UK has corresponding driving offence codes for use on your driving licence.
Depending on your specific offence, you will be given penalty points and these depend on the seriousness of the offence and indeed the offence itself.
Penalty points stay on your driving licence for differing lengths of time too, again dependent on the offence in question.
AC10, 20 & 30
Causing Death Through Drink & Drugs
Dangerous / Defective Vehicles
Drunk in Charge
Drugged in Charge
Miscellaneous Offence Codes
Theft & TWOCing (Taking Without Consent)
These offence codes cover UK motoring offences and indicate each driving offence on your licence.
If you are worried about pending prosecutions for motoring offences, talk to the UK’s largest specialist motoring solicitors, Patterson Law and find out how to defend the allegations against you.
Offence codes remain on your licence for different periods of time, depending on the offence. Some can seriously hamper your ability to get a job, or can lead to your dismissal.
