Drivers can be charged for a wide range of driving convictions. Each conviction has its own code that will remain of your driving licence for some time. How long it remains on your licence for depends on several factors.
The impact of getting a conviction can differ, with some making it difficult to find cover. Here at Peart Performance Marque, we will work closely with you to help you find cover after a driving conviction.

What are the UK Driving Conviction Codes?
Officially known as endorsement codes, these can stay on your licence for a minimum of four years up to 11 years. This is usually in the case of serious offences, such as death by dangerous driving.
Drivers with convictions on their licences can face a number of difficulties, including insurance. Peart Performance Marque specialises in Convicted Driver Insurance and can help you find a policy depending on your circumstances.
Below are some of the official driving conviction codes we specialise in.
If you are convicted of driving or attempting to drive over the legal alcohol limit, your DR10 endorsement remains on your licence for 11 years. You will also receive 3 to 11 points on your license.
Driving without due care and attention features endangerment of the public and other road users. If convicted, you will get three to nine points on your driving license for four years.
Similar to DR10, DG10 is driving or attempting to drive over the specified drug limit, legal or illegal. Your endorsement will remain on your license for 11 years and you will receive 3 to 11 points.
Failing to stop after an incident can lead to an AC10 conviction. Any driver involved in an accident must stop and remain there until all required details have been taken. If convicted, the endorsement remains on your license for 4 years and will receive 5 to 10 points.
If you are caught driving whilst disqualified by order of court, this is an arrestable offence. Your BA10 endorsement remains on your license for 4 years. Furthermore, you will receive 6 points on your license.
A TT99 endorsement tracks the points you have gained and must remain on your licence for 4 years. If you build up 12 or more points within 3 years, you will be disqualified under ‘totting-up’.
