how long do points remain on your license ?

How long do points stay on your driving license ? I was caught by a speed camera doing 34mph , I paid the fine & took the points. I was just wondering how long they will remain on my license ?

3 years. Insurers ask for points dating back as 5 years, so for example in 2000 you got points for speeding, in 2003 they wouild be removed, but a new insurers in 2004 would have to know about them.
They are valid for 3 years but have to stay on there for a fourth year before you can ask for them to be taken off.
yes,they stay on the licence for 4 yrs,but only count as points for 3 yrs,strange,but thats how it works.
The amount of time in which an endorsement remains on your licence depends on the type of offence committed. The date in which the endorsement starts also depends on the type of offence.

Endorsements must remain on a licence for 11 years from date of conviction if the offence is:
� drinking/drugs and driving (shown on the licence as DR10, DR20, DR30 and DR80)
� causing death by careless driving whilst under the influence of drink/drugs (shown on the licence as CD40, CD50 and CD60)
� causing death by careless driving, then failing to provide a specimen for analysis (shown on the licence as CD70)

Endorsements must remain on a licence for four years from date of conviction if the offence is:
� reckless/dangerous driving (shown on the licence as DD40, DD60 and DD80)
� offences resulting in disqualification
� disqualified from holding a full licence until a driving test has been passed

Endorsements must remain on a licence for four years from the date of offence in all other cases.

I have 9 points on my license but 3 of those 9 points are from may 2008? Is it correct they stay on my license for 4 years but only mean anything for 3 years? So badicasly if I was to get stopped again it would come up with 6 points? But I still have 9 on my paper license? So I wouldn't get a ban.
I have 9 points on my license but 3 of them are from may 2008 is it correct that they stay on my paper license after 3 years but don't actually count if I was to get more?
So technically i have 6 points by law but the ones that expired may stay for another year?
So I couldn't get a ban if I was to get stopped again?
It's so confusing.
