• Disqualified? Get your licence back early

Being disqualified from driving can have serious consequences for your ability to work and care for your loved ones. There are circumstances where you can ask the Court to consider the early removal of your disqualification. This will only apply if you have been disqualified for two years or more. If you need to take a re-test then you cannot apply for early return of your licence.

For the best chance of success speak to one of our experts about getting your licence back early.

When considering an application the Court will look at:

  • Work

    Do you need a licence to carry out your job or is there a new job opportunity that requires you to drive?

  • Health

    Has a health issue arisen for either you or your immediate family that means you now need to travel by car?

  • Caring responsibilities

    Do you need to ferry around your young children and elderly relatives, or drive in order to see and care for your loved ones?

The Court will take account any relevant information we place before it and you need to initially set out your case in writing and then present your case in Court. If you are unsuccessful then you will have to wait a further three months before you can apply again.

Key stages for a guilty plea
