Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Offences committed when driving on an international driving permit are handled by court as a matter of procedure. Court issued FPN in such circumstances doesn't necessarily mean an "unspent conviction". I have mentioned this fact in the topic by friend12345 and so has Gyfrinachgar explained this fact in his post in the topic!!!skstorm wrote:back in early 2009 he was stopped by the police for being on a mobile phone while he was driving. They were about to issue a FPN when they queried his licence and found he was driving on an international licence after 12 months (I make no excuses for this it was an oversight on our fault as he usually went home each year therefore renewing the 12 months, this year the home office took 6 months to renew his visa leaving him unable to go home in the college holidays and we completely forgot about the impact to his driving licence). Needless to say my husband already had a provisional with an intention of taking the test so by the time we went to court my husband had passed the UK driving test and obtained a british licence thereby showing it would not happen again. he received
CU80 3 points and £60 fine for being on mobile phone (same as FPN)
LC20 £35 fine.

Sent my licence by post and also paid the fine by phone the very next day. I know that a number of people have gone through with the ILR with CU 80. I would be applying after 13th December for the ILR when the new rules are in place. What are my chances.
