Early Return of a Driving Licence

Early Return of a Driving Licence Solicitors

There are circumstances where the Court will consider returning a driving licence earlier than the timeframe imposed in the original disqualification order.

With our Motor Law you have access to a specialist team that can advise and assist you in making an application to the Court to remove the period of disqualification.

This application must be made in person before the same Court that imposed the original ban and it can only be made if you have been disqualified;

  • For less than four years, and two years have passed;
  • Less than 10 years, but not less than four, and half of the period of disqualification has passed; or
  • Five years has passed in other cases.

In its assessment the Court will consider various factors including, but not limited to, your character and personal conduct and/or the nature of the offence for which you were disqualified for.

Each case is unique and therefore it is vital that the application presents a robust argument for the early reinstatement of your driving licence, all supported by appropriate evidence. Our specialist team will advise and assist in preparing the application, and will attend Court with you to present a forceful argument with the aim of getting you back on the road.

Remember, even where an application is refused by the Court you can submit a further application following three months from the refusal date.
