Applying For Your Licence Back Early


Need your licence back early following a ban?  If you have been disqualified for 3 years or more you can apply to get your licence back early. You must wait for 2 years after you were banned, or half way through your ban, whichever is the longest.


How Can You Get Your Licence Back Early?


You have to make an application to the court where you were disqualified, they will then list a hearing. At that hearing you will have to persuade the court that they should give you your licence back early.  You will need to give evidence and you will be cross examined.

The police will be informed and may attend to object to the application.
