I am an EU citized living in the UK. When I lived in my home country, I had a driving conviction which resulted in points, a fine and a withheld licence for 3 months. These fines and penalties were of course paid back then, learning my lesson.
Are the points (e.g. from speeding, drink driving etc) on an EU licence related only to the country where the offence happened, or do they legally apply also in the UK, and as a result they should be mentioned when asked?
I am asking because whether you have a conviction in the previous 5 years is a question asked by insurance companies when you apply for car insurance.
If you don't know the answer, but you know where should I ask about it (besides an insurance company because I might be tricked), please tell me.
