Points on Driving Licence.

I was 'awarded' 3 points for doing 38 in a 30 zone exactly 4 years ago today.

My query is, do I physically have to send my licence back to the DVLA to have these points removed (which costs money), as surely now that 4 years have gone by they are now invalid and therefore do not exist.

If I was to get pulled over tonight for speeding, would I have no points on my licence or would there still be three, even though they 'ran out' today?
No don't need to send it. Its the date that counts.

I had mine on for nearly 7 years before i had to get a change of address done.
Took them all off then.

when i went to court they mentioned spent offences that were still on there. "mr xxx has a previous SP30 offence but for the purposes of the court, presents today with a clean license".

and i got off v light, so pretty sure it wasn't held against me.
