Your driving licence: getting it back

As the New Drivers Act article outlines, if you get six penalty points or more in the first two years of having a licence, then it is revoked and you have to retake both tests: the theory and the practical test.

You have to reapply for a provisional licence first, then retake the tests and claim your test pass. You are the one that has to pay for taking those tests again. You then, once you've passed the test, have to exchange your provisional driving licence for a full one.

It is also worth remembering that the penalty points will remain on the licence until their expiry when you pass the test again, so it does not wipe the slate clean fully. Also if you were entitled to drive other vehicles, such as a lorry, then you need approval of a traffic commissioner, and that may involve taking another test on those vehicles.

You do have the right of appeal against the conviction that led to you getting the six penalty points, you need to seek advice from which court convicted you to find out what you need to do in order to appeal against the penalty points.
