The Telegraph report:

Drivers can be banned from the road if they accumulate 12 points on their licence over a three-year period, but there are 8,000 drivers still getting behind the wheel despite having reached or exceeded that number.

The worst offender was a woman from west London who accumulated 42 points for failing to disclose the identity of the driver seven times between May 26 and December 21 last year, according to DVLA statistics.

It is thought that some people are keeping their licences because of a failure of communication between the DVLA and the courts.
