When you receive penalty points on your driving licence, they will stay there for four years after you are convicted.

This is the case for most offences however, death by dangerous driving while under the influence of drink or drugs and death by dangerous driving and failing to provide a specimen for analysis will result in the endorsements staying on your licence for eleven years.

The endorsements will appear on the paper counterpart. When they are due to expire, you can send your licence to the DVLA and they will exchange your licence. The fee for this is normally £17.50.

You can drive in this period when your licence is with the DVLA unless you have been disqualified or have had your licence removed due to a medical condition.
