The Concept.

Files.

Introduction.
I
Every driver would have... a 'File' linked to their driver's licence number, even if it only said, 'No Entries'.  When a Road Supervisor made a 'Report' a copy would be sent to the registered owner of that vehicle.  As with offences caught on camera, the registered owner would have a certain time to return the form naming an alternative driver, or 1 point would be put against their licence.  The driver could then write any relevant comments on the report form for their own use, read any 'Inserts' or written 'Warnings' included and file it away in a safe place, as they may need to refer to it at a later date.  This would be one copy of their official driving record and any number of people might ask to see it at some time in the future.

Copies of a File could be downloaded by the Police: Courts: or Review Panels if required.

Files.
I
  • A 'File' would be kept on every driver.
  • Files would be either 'Dormant' or 'Active'.
  • Many Files would contain little or no information.
  • With 'Dormant Files', the information would go directly on the record.
  • An 'Active File' means that someone would be reading every report, before it was put on record.
  • Any serious 'Incident' may cause a File to be 'Activated', by the Police.
  • Probationary drivers reaching 25 points would have their File activated, someone would then 'Review' the File and decide if any action needed to be taken.  
  • Drivers reaching 50 points would have their File activated, someone would then review the File and decide if any action needed to be taken.
  • Probationary drivers reaching 35 points would definitely be asked to appear before  a Review Panel, [the File would then be 'Active', and remain so.]
  • Drivers reaching 75 points would definitely be asked to appear before a Review Panel, [the File would then be 'Active' and remain so.]
  • Any driver appearing before a Review Panel would have their File activated.
  • Any driver appearing in Court would have their File activated, [even if the File contained 'No Entries'.]
  • Drivers would be expected to keep their copy of the File for their own reference.
  • On attending a Review Panel, or Court, a driver would be expected to have their File copy to refer to.
  • Defenders and Prosecutors would have access to Files and could ask for a driver's history to be taken into account, [when passing a sentence.]
  • Employers would have the right to see an employees File if their work involved driving on company business. 
  • Insurance companies, or potential employers could ask to see a copy of a driver's File.
  • Police could have access to a 'Closed' part of the File which would cover details of any 'Accident', a report about an 'Incident' or a vehicle which was reported as 'Suspicious' for some reason.
  • Every Road Supervisor would have their own 'Report File' with details of every report they had ever made about other drivers.

Reports.
I
'Files' would be made up of... individual 'Reports' which would have been submitted by Road Supervisors, either by filling out a form and sending it through the post, or by directly logging onto a Web site.  'High quality' Information would be required so reports would have to be done properly.  Some information would be 'essential' to every report, [vehicle registration number] while other information would simply be 'desirable', [vehicle colour]  Not all the details submitted on the report would necessarily be on the copy sent to the owner, some information may remain confidential.
I
The 'File'... should form an individual's complete driving history, so apart from Reports [from Road Supervisors] might also contain details of any Court appearances: Courses or Re-training undertaken: Photographs from Speed, or Red-Light cameras: or even Video taken from Police cars or cctv.
