If you have passed your test within the past two years you will classed as a new driver. As a new driver you will be subject a “probationary period” for the two years following your test. If you accumulate 6 points the DVLA will revoke you driving licence and you will have to take a re-test to get it back which involves taking both the practical and the theory tests.
Are you likely to get 6 points or more?
If you have accumulated 3 points as a provisional driver and a further 3 points after passing your test within the 2 year period you will have your licence revoked and will also be subject to the re-test.This penalty is imposed automatically by the DVLA and there is no redress. You will be informed that your licence has been revoked and you must not drive during the revocation period or until you have passed the re-test, doing so will incur more serious charges.
The points will remain on your licence for a three year period so having successfully regained your driving licence if you were to accumulate a further 6 points you would liable to a disqualification under the ‘totting up’ procedure.
The revocation of your licence under these circumstances is difficult to avoid but not impossible. You cannot avoid revocation by accept a fixed penalty notice as the revocation is made by the DVLA and not the court. The only way is if you either defend your case or you argue special reasons for non-endorsement but if unsuccessful you could receive a period of disqualification, higher fines and costs, so it is advisable to seek expert advice to ensure your chance of success.
