New Law Effective 1 March if you use your Mobile Phone whilst Driving

Home » News » New Law Effective 1 March

From 1 March 2017, any motorists caught driving while using handheld mobile devices will face double the penalty under the new legislation. Anyone caught driving while using a handheld mobile device will receive six penalty points and a £200 fine. Currently, the penalty is three points and a £100 fine.

This means that new drivers, who have a ceiling of six points for the first two years of qualifying, could immediately lose their licence and be made to retake their test.

Experienced drivers who offend more than once face a fine of up to £1,000 and a minimum six-month driving ban. Drivers of buses, lorries and goods vehicles can be fined up to £2,500.
