I heard that if you are teaching someone to drive and have points on your licence then you are not allowed to teach, sit in passenger seat whilst displaying L plates.

You may have points on your licence but as long as you're not disqualified from driving, you're allowed to supervise a learner. So check whether you've not reached 12 points already through the totting up procedure and if you're a new driver, it's 6 points instead. If you're been convicted by a court, they may have suspended your licence as well, therefore confirm you've got a valid license and you'll be all good to teach the learner.

Note : You must be over 21 and have held the licence for at least 3 years.
