If you have been disqualified it does not necessarily mean that you have to serve the full driving disqualification.  With expert assistance from a Motoring Offence specialist solicitor, it may be possible for your disqualification to be removed so that you can start driving again.

There are a number of situations where you can apply for early removal of your driving ban and, depending on how long you were banned for, we may be able to apply to the Court to help you do just that.

You can apply for the removal of a driving ban if you were disqualified for 4 years and 2 years have passed since you were disqualified. If you have been disqualified for between 4 and 10 years, you must wait at least half of your disqualification before you can apply.  In any other case, 5 years is the minimum. 

The application will be considered by the Court if it thinks proper in regards to an applicant’s character, his conduct after disqualification, the nature of the offence and any other circumstances.

The court has the power to remove a disqualification if they consider it appropriate.  It is open to them to either grant it immediately or to grant it from a date in the future.  If the application is refused it can be renewed not less than 3 months after the previous application.

The application need not be heard by the same Judge or Magistrates who imposed the original disqualification, so long as the same Court hears it.

In the case of a disqualification for an offence, such as dangerous driving, which provides for a driver to pass an extended test at the end of his disqualification before he can drive again, there is nothing to prevent a Court removing the disqualification so that the process of taking the extended test can, therefore, begin sooner.


We are highly experienced in dealing with cases involving applications for the removal of disqualifications and understand the process of how to prepare and present such a case.  We have helped countless drivers to get their disqualifications removed and we are confident we can do the same for you. 

We understand that you will be eager to get back on the road as quickly as possible and we can submit the application before the minimum disqualification period has been served to ensure that it will be considered by the Court at the earliest possible opportunity. 

We understand the need to present to the Court the full details about your character, your conduct since the conviction and other factors affecting yourself and others and we will present a fully prepared case and argue it vigorously on your behalf.
