Should I tell my insurer that a named driver has been prosecuted for speeding and has points on his licence?

A named driver on my private car insurance policy has an unspent Fixed Penalty speeding offence (Code SP30). Can I allow him to drive my car, given that I have not told my insurance company of the three points on his licence?
