The law on using a mobile phone when driving

When it comes to mobile phone driving laws – what is and isn’t illegal?

It can be a bit of a controversial topic, as some want to ban in-car mobile phone use altogether, including handsfree.

However, what are the current law and the penalties for using a mobile whilst driving?

Mobile phone driving laws were first introduced in December 2003, and from 2007 drivers incurred three penalty points on their licence and a fine (£60 at first, then £100 from 2013).

From 1 March 2017, the penalty has doubled – being caught using a mobile phone whilst driving now carries a penalty of six points and a £200 fine.
