In Car Bluetooth Hands Free Systems

You are probably aware that in March 2017, the law changed with regards to using your mobile phone in the car. The following information is from gov.uk and outlines using mobile phones when driving.

The Law:

It's illegal to use a hand-held phone or similar device while driving, or riding a motorcycle. The rules are the same if you're stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic. It's also illegal to use a hand-held phone or similar device when supervising a learner driver or rider.

You must stay in full control of your vehicle at all times. The police can stop you if they think you're not in control because you're distracted. This includes if you're using devices like your sat nav or car radio.

If you're the driver, you can only use your phone in a vehicle if you need to call 999 or 112 in an emergency and it's unsafe or impractical to stop or if you are safely parked.

Penalties for using your phone while driving:
You could get 6 penalty points on your licence and a fine of £200.
Your case could also go to court and you could be disqualified from driving or riding and get a maximum fine of £1,000. Drivers of buses or goods vehicles could get a maximum fine of £2,500.
(Last updated: 2 March 2017)
