Driving Whilst Using a Mobile Phone
It is illegal to drive a vehicle whilst using a mobile phone or a similar device, such as an iPad.
The offence of driving whilst using your mobile phone carries a 3 point penalty endorsement and a fine of up to £1,000 (or £2,500 for larger vehicles). In some circumstances it can even lead to you losing your driving license for 6 months or more. These cases are whereby the act of someone texting and driving, or taking a call whilst at the wheel has caused or contributed to an accident. The Police in these instances will prosecute with the charge of driving without due care and attention.
