The new Road Safety Law that the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) is on the eve of approving, once it has passed all the requirements of the Congress of Deputies, will stipulate, among other matters, changes in the driving license. A card that in 2021 turns 15 under the points system, key to reducing fatal accidents and “very serious” reckless driving.

Recovering points, despite not having lost all of them, will be easier with the new system that the DGT will implement in the coming months on driving licenses. The most dissuasive tool against traffic offenses, although on many occasions the majority of Spaniards do not know how many points they have.

Serial 12 points, with the exception of novices and people who have recovered their card after having lost it, in addition to the maximum allowed is 15 points if a series of years are fulfilled without having very serious faults. However, the new law also contemplates the possibility of earn up to 2 points, regardless of the points you have (except 0 and 15), provided that you take a series of courses.

These are the safe driving courses, certified by the DGT, whose bases and conditions have yet to be stipulated once the reform is approved. In addition, all those who have less than 12 points and pass two years in a row without having a violation they will retrieve this dozen as if it were the basic system.
