would you do this for your DH?

My DH has managed to get 9 points on his drivers license for speeding offences, I however in my 36 years have never managed any.
He asked me if I would have the next set of points put on my drivers license otherwise he will lose his license (in other words say it was me driving). I told him to f off and to learn how to stick to the speed limit- I can managed it so why can't he?
AIBU about this, he reckons 3 points on my license wont make much difference but I am in the process of having a CRB check done (applied to study nursing) and don't want any criminal offences although I know they don't take driving offences too seriously, but still.
He is in a major mood with me atm. AIBU about not wanting someone elses points on my license? especially as I haven't been the one speeding.

Not sure if YABU but friends of ours were in the same boat and he had 3 points put on his wifes licence (with her agreement) but he needs his car/licence to get to work (1hour commute).
If it were me, I would probably do the same but tell him that he had to be more careful and that I would definitely not do it again.

he is asking you to sosomehting illegal which, as someone had already pointed out, could put you in prison.
He needs to take responsibility - a few weeks without driving might be good for him.
I had a friend who was always getting points for speeding and it was really only when he lost his licence for 6 weeks that he changed his attitude

When my dh got points, the letter telling us about it included a copy of the photo, in which you could see perfectly well that it was him driving. If one of those cameras gets him he has not got a hope in hell of getting away with claiming it was you driving, and you could both get into very big trouble.
You can buy, for about £50, a little thing a bit like a satnav that sits on the dashboard and tells you what the limit is (and where the cameras are) and when you are going over it. (Really, really useful for areas where the signage isn't very good, or you miss a sign because there is a lot going on.)

So he wants you to be willing to do something illegal so that he can continue to do something illegal
And even then, with 9 points he could get done by a cop car with no chance of pretending to be someone else.
It may also affect your insurance - I heard they are getting tougher.
HIBU not you.
