Just received a notification and update of my points situation and was surprised to learn that my 12 points total is now reduced to 6.
The last time I had such an update I had 9 and I can’t see how I could have lost a further 3.
The letter gives a link, a dossier number and a mot de passe to reveal my current, and historical details, but whatever I do it simply won’t let me do so.
This is my history of the last 8 years with the dates of payment which are normally about 14 days after the offence.

As far as I know a point deducted is restored if no other infractions are recorded in the following 6 months. Those marked with an X should signify following a 6 month free period and thus a restoration.
There are 5 such periods thus leaving me a maximum of 7 points not 6.
However, rightly or wrongly, I understood that points not restored by 6 month free periods, were restored anyway after 3 years. Does anyone know if this is correct?
If so, should not all those incurred before February 2016 be spent now anyway, irrespective of the periods between them?
In which case my current tally should be 8. Or 9, taking into account the 6 months clear between July 2019 and February 2021.
Very perplexing, especially as, if I am right, they could reduce that tally even further without any other infractions at all.
