Failing to Stop and Report and Accident – The Process and Implications

These offences are viewed seriously by the court, and thus carry a high number of penalty points upon conviction, or even a discretionary disqualification. 

The minimum number of points is 5 the maximum is 10. You only need to accrue 12 points in a 3 year period to potentially face a “totting-up” disqualification for a minimum period of 6 months. 

Depending on the nature and severity of the incident, you could even end up with a prison sentence.
