Penalties for using your phone while driving
You can get an automatic fixed penalty notice if you’re caught using a hand-held phone while driving or riding. You’ll get 3 penalty points on your licence and a fine of £100.
Your case could also go to court and you could be disqualified from driving or riding and get a maximum fine of £1,000. Drivers of buses or goods vehicles could get a maximum fine of £2,500.
You’ll lose your licence if you get 6 or more penalty points within 2 years of passing your test.
Hands-Free and Bluetooth Car Kits
It is illegal to use a hand held device such as a mobile phone whilst driving in the UK. You can be prosecuted if you require your employees to make or receive calls from their vehicle whilst driving without them having the use of a hands free or bluetooth car kit which is fitted in their vehicle. Installing a hands-free kit not only ensures you and your employees operate within the law, it also helps to protect their safety and the safety of other road users
