    I paid £100 on 21/12/16 for contravening a red a light and was given 3 points.

    I recently had a £100 refund in June from hm courts svs gov.

    It seems other people have had this happen but not clear on what the results were.

    I have checked the gov website and phoned the DVLA and they say I have 0 penalty points. Could this just be an error with the system?

    Would the check that insurance companies do show up my points?

    Do you think this is grounds to now not mention the points when applying for car insurance? Tempted to not mention it. Don't want to phone up ticket office in case the ask for the £100 back.

    Not much in fact. It was more like a driving test

    But nice bit of grammar picking there.

    Well, I was born in Essex, but I didn't realise people at school in Stoke were taught a different version of English.

    they still insist on using outdated breaking distance measurements
    Based on, I think, a Ford Anglia. You could still buy that car and drive it on a motorway so it's still relevant to a tiny number of drivers. If people weren't getting rear ended all the time maybe we could think about updating them, but it seems that roads have got busier and people pay less attention, so we have to stick with the lowest common denominator. Presumably you've been caught speeding and don't like it.
