What happens if you are caught Driving a Vehicle in a Dangerous Condition?
The Court can impose a mandatory 3 penalty points or a discretionary disqualification and a fine of up to £2,500 for a non-commercial vehicle.
Things to remember before accepting a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN)
If you are prosecuted for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, you are likely to receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) offering you 3 penalty points and a fine.
If you have 9 penalty points on your licence at the time of the relevant offence, you cannot accept a further FPN as this will activate a 6 month totting up driving disqualification under Section 35 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.
Another example of this is if you were prosecuted for four bald tyres, accepting an FPN for each one would take you to 12 penalty points, therefore making you liable to a totting up disqualification.
If you are facing a potential disqualification as a result of a prosecution for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, you may wish to seek legal advice and representation.

If you do not advance exceptional hardship at Court, you will be liable to the minimum 6 month totting up disqualification.

For those who have held a full UK licence for more than two years, they will have a 12 penalty point allowance on their driving licence.
However, if you are a new driver, you have a 6 penalty point allowance on your driving licence. If you reach 6 penalty points or more, the DVLA will automatically revoke your licence and you will have to sit your theory test and take your practical test again in order to obtain a new licence.
