Applications must be made in accordance with section 42 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988, meaning that you cannot apply to have your disqualification removed unless a prescribed period of time has elapsed. Depending on your circumstances, this will be one of the following:
two years, if your disqualification is for less than four years;
one half of your period of disqualification, if your disqualification is for less than 10 years but not less than four years; and
five years in any other case
Applications will often be opposed by the Crown Prosecution Service, but when instructing Wilford Smith’s Criminal Defence Lawyers, you can be sure that we will develop high-level strategies on your behalf through our skill, hard work and determination, giving you the best chance of having your licence returned.
