New Drivers Act

Hi,I'm confused! I passed by bike test back in 2001 but only got my car licence last year.  According to the new driver act you can only get 6 points from the date you passed your test but does this apply to me as I got my bike licence before this came into effect. I've just got 3 points for speeding on the bike, does this mean I can only get another 3 before I lose my licence? Anyone know?Thanks

Does this make sense? This more or less implies that if I were to buy the parts myself after a payout I wouldn't ...

A traffic police officer then told me that I had crossed a double white line and gave me a penalty charge notice for %XA3100 ...

I am due to go abroad this year and am soon to get an International driving permit... on the actual permit does the Catergory A just get stamped no matter whether A1/A2 or full A? how does it show the difference on the IDP? or does it not? and thats what the UK licence will clarify?
