The Institute of Advanced Motorists has revealed that 226,803 people have points on their licence for driving without insurance.

This figure – which breaks down to 194,997 full licence holders and 31,806 provisional – comes courtesy of a freedom of information request and equates to 1 in every 200 full licence holders.Furthermore, drivers aged 25 to 35 are the most likely to commit this offence whereas those over 65 are the least likely.

And it seems men are more likely to offend than women irrespective of age group.
