    INTERESTING “POINTS”

    We need someone with a strong sense of community dedication to system test
    this one out - r u you game?
    Avoid points on your licence!
    Only accountants could come up with this one.

    Pay your fine, but, NO POINTS DEDUCTED!!

    Read on :-
    This is how points are added to your licence:
    If you get a fixed penalty notice through the post which also carries penalty
    points the computer system first sends you a demand for the cash.
    When you have paid, it then sends a demand to return your licence for endorsement.
    It cannot handle the licence endorsement and the payment at the same time, and it cannot process the points part of the system until the financial section is complete.
    If you overpay the fixed penalty, it must issue and send a refund cheque for the overpayment.
    Therefore, overpay the fixed penalty by sending a cheque for the full amount plus £1.
    The computer will then automatically generate a refund cheque for the
    over-payment and send it to you.

    **** Do not cash this refund cheque - DUMP IT.

    The system then remains 'open' and cannot generate the 'send your licence for
    endorsement' demand part of the program.
    It does, however, record your payment of the fixed penalty, so it does not trigger
    the 'follow-up unpaid fine' stage.
    As there is no human intervention, the system will leave you alone, since
    it has got your money, which is the primary objective!

    The endorsement on your license is for your own benefit and to save people the task of doing the computer search (i.e. produce at the local nick, copy for your insurance etc), the actual penalty points are already logged on the system.

    A lot of insurance companies these days don' even ask for your license, unless it is to confirm identity, they already know your history
