recently caught doing 43 in 30 and recieved NIP
unsure if it was my car, as car was also overtaking me allthough we may have been flashed twice.

also i hold a foreign licence ,ie Irish and european and on last offence about 9 years ago had licence retured as they
said they were unable to put points on it.
Is this still the case ?

As a GB resident, you may drive on an [ordinary] EC / EEA issued licence until you reach of the age of 70 or until you have been a GB resident for three years, whichever is the longer.

(ETA - This does not include EC/EEA licences which were issued in exchange for licences from elsewhere).
