Upgraded computer systems at the DVLA and Britain's courts will improve the sharing of information from October, a motoring chief has said.
Simon Best, the chief executive of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) hoped better IT systems would keep motorists with more than 12 points on their license off the road.
Mr Best had "no sympathy" with car owners who refused to reveal the identity of a driver caught breaking the law while behind the wheel and wanted an urgent consultation on the problem.
DVLA and the courts service are upgrading their computer systems to ensure that offence information is shared more efficiently, but this is not due to be in place until October.
When drivers with 10 speeding offences are getting away with holding a licence, these improvements cannot come quickly enough."
The IAM has no sympathy for owners who refuse to reveal the identity of the driver, and we would welcome an urgent consultation on new ways to deal with this problem.
Drivers must expect that 12 points means a ban or the whole system falls into disrepute.
