    I passed my test two weeks ago, and it was my 2nd/3rd time of driving home late at night. The town center was quite busy tonight as a football game had been on and there were a few police cars about. Unfortunately I got pulled over literally 20 seconds after I began driving for not having any lights on.
    The policeman was very polite and although understood that I had just started driving, still had to take my details. I now don't know however if I got a warning or am away to get a fine through the door. I have a feeling there are no penalty points, but I have no idea what sort of night the policeman had previously. So am wondering what the normal procedure is that they go through

    Generally, if you cooperated with the policeman and it all went smoothly, you might get lucky and it could just be a warning.

    The only way you'll know if you got a fine, is if one pops through the post. It's a waiting game pal. But honestly, i wouldn't fine you for having your lights off especially if you're new.
