TWENTY FIVE drivers in Fife have been allowed to remain on the road despite having 12 penalty points or more on their licence.
The figure was uncovered by the Co-operative Motor Group, following a freedom of information request to the DVLA.
Usually when drivers accrue a dozen points they are liable to be disqualified under the ‘totting-up’ system.
Courts are allowed however to use their discretion when it comes to deciding if a driver should be banned.
Throughout the UK there are almost 9000 drivers on 12 or more point with 300 of those living in Scotland.
