New mobile phone laws while driving will come into force from Friday 25 March 2022

New mobile phone laws while driving will come into force from Friday 25 March 2022, the Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom has confirmed.

  • Any use of a hand held mobile phone while driving will be illegal.
  • Anyone caught using their mobile phone while driving will face a £200 fine and six points on their licence.
  • The new law follows public consultation which found that 81% of people supported this move to make the roads safer.

Drivers will still be able to continue using a device ‘hands-free’ while driving, such as a sat-nav, if it’s secured in a cradle. They must, however, always take responsibility for their driving and can be charged with an offence if the police find them not to be in proper control of their vehicle.
