With a LC20 endorsement on your license, you need specialist insurance. Having points on your license for any reason will increase your insurance premiums, regardless of the cause. Insurers consider you an increased risk and will up premiums accordingly.

Driving in any way that isn’t authorised by your licence (LC20) could be the result of a mistake. Some people don’t understand what they can and cannot drive, particularly when you consider rental vehicles. Find out more about a driving without insurance endorsement on your driver’s licence and what it means for you.

How You Got A LC20 Conviction Code

A LC20 endorsement is applied when you are caught driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence. This usually is a result of driving the wrong category of vehicle.

Penalties For Driving Otherwise Than In Accordance With A Licence

If convicted, your LC20 endorsement remains on your driver’s licence for 4 years from the date of the offence. In addition to any other punishment, you will receive 3-6 points on your license. If you acquire 12 or more points within 3 years, you will also be banned from driving.
