I was wondering if anyone knew about how the points system works and still having an English licence. I have been living here for a year and very stupidly have managed to get 10 points from speeding fines. I have a French car registered to my French address so the fines- all from speed cameras- come automatically to my house and I have been paying them. I recently tried to enrol in a Stage de Sensibilisation to get back 4 points, but I was not allowed to do it as I had an English licence.
I think officially I can't actually have the points on an English licence, and I know the law says that you have to change your licence to a French one once you get a fine. So although I might not technically have the points on there, I still receive the notices in the post and have been paying the fines, but my question is whether if (by some terrible circumstance) I do get the last 2 speeding fines, and therefore reach the limit of 12 on my English licence, will I actually lose my driving licence?
Advice from anyone with any experience of this would be great- I understand that a lot of people just pay the money and don't change their licences for the one or two fines, but I'm wondering if anyone has got to the limit of 12?
