Some of the motoring offences in the UK that could result in points on your motorbike licence include:
- Running a red light
- Failing to stop at the scene an accident
- Driving without insurance
- Driving without due care and attention
- Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs
If you're applying for motorbike insurance and you have previous convictions on your licence, it's very important that you disclose any information about these convictions. Failure to inform your insurance provider about any convictions you have received could technically be seen as fraud, and could result in your policy may be terminated.
Points remain on your licence for around three to four years, and if you total more than 12 points, your licence will be confiscated. The amount of points you receive on your licence, or the period of time you are banned for, will depend on the offence.
