Using a mobile phone whilst driving a motor vehicle is a serious and dangerous offence. 

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, using a mobile phone/device while driving is illegal.

Whether you drive a motorbike, car, taxi, van or lorry your driving ability is greatly impaired if you use your phone whilst behind the wheel. You can't concentrate on the road and your phone.

You put not only yourself at risk by driving whilst using your phone but any passengers travelling in your vehicle and other road users too. Leave your phone alone and don't put anyone at risk.

We all play a part in helping to make our roads safer.

If you are a new driver with less than 2 years' experience then you will lose your driving licence.

If not then you could be liable for 6 penalty points and a £200 fine.

You could also be taken to court and banned from driving, with a maximum fine of £1000.
