Speeding Conviction Codes


Speeding Conviction Codes

There are a range of driving convictions that every driver could potentially be charged for. Every conviction has its own particular endorsement code that will stay on a driving record.

You should be aware that the length of time the code stays on your driving licence is determined by a range of factors. Some motoring offences can result in a driver being disqualified from driving.

Most speeding conviction codes stay on your driving licence 4 years from the date of conviction. However, the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974 states that any driving convictions are spent after a period of 5 years.

This means you won’t have to tell your car insurance provider about your conviction. Please note, depending on their severity, some convictions could stay on your licence for up to 11 years.

However, this is usually the case for serious offences such as causing death by dangerous driving.
