What is a TT99 conviction?
The offence code TT99 is used when someone is disqualified from driving because they've "totted up" 12 or more points in the space of three years. This is often known as a "totting up ban".
Is TT99 a criminal conviction?
TT99 is not a criminal conviction. Rather, it's a mark that remains even after the points on your licence have been removed. In the UK, it is a requirement to disclose offences for insurance purposes even beyond the disqualification period.
How long does TT99 stay on a driving licence?
TT99 stays on your licence for four years from the date of your conviction.
Your driving ban, on the other hand, will typically last between six and 24 months. Whilst points are removed once your ban has expired, TT99 will remain on your licence until four years have passed.
Can I rent a car with TT99 on my licence?
This will depend on the rental company as some are more strict than others. A TT99 driving code could prevent you from renting a car. In some cases, you might have to wait until the totting up conviction is removed from your licence before you're able to rent a car freely.
What are the other codes for driving offences?
There are dozens of different driving offences, each with their own code. Some of the most common driving offences include:
Driving or attempting to drive while under the influence of drugs
Driving or attempting to drive while unfit due to drinking or drugs
Driving without a licence
Excessive speeding on a public road
Failing to comply with traffic signs
