Promotion Points for Driver and Mechanic Badge

I have a Driver and Mechanic Badge with Wheeled Vehicles and Tracked Vehicles component bars. Do I get promotions points for both?

Soldiers receive 10 points for the basic DRV/MECH badge with no additional promotion points for component bars IAW MILPER Message 17-022. Therefore, you will only receive 10 points regardless of how many component bars you have.
