Yes they were, I had to submit my license to the police station who forwarded it to the DVLA. The charge came as a FPN.
Just to clarify, even though the court issued the points (I'm assuming that my license went from the police station to the court and then to the dvla) because I never went to court and because I paid the FPN without question, I do not need to tell the UKBA?
Can I use your answer as an official statement from a solicitor?
Thanks very much for your help, it's a relief to have some peace of mind!
