Driving without a licence
he said to me do you only have a provisional license, i said yes , he said we have had information that you have been driving around on one .
he then had my car removed to a compound and said i would have to pay Â£150 to have it back outside my home the next day which didnt make sense to take it then me pay that amount to put it back in the same spot.
my point is why did they not call to my home as soon as they got the information and warn me not to drive the car on a provisional. it seemed to me he waited for me to commit the offence as it now goes to court. is there a way of finding out when they received the information on me and if they should of called on me prompt and warned me rether than waiting for me to commit the offence. its like saying i know that mans got a knife so lets wait till he uses it rather than prevent it.
Your road traffic offence question: hi, im having great difficultly getting any support with a situation im in, im due to go on trial in court on the xth for the above offence. i passed my test in x but was wrongly accused of not having insurance in 2000. i live in london but was unable to attend court in x, and was never made aware that the case proceeded in my absence. it wasn't until sometime in 2005/06 that i was stopped by police and this came to light, i attended court with all my documents. licence and insurance (inc) which covered me for the x period i was wrongly accused of. the court at the time found me innocent of driving while on a revoked licence, but i have been having great difficulty getting the dvla to talk to me regarding the matter, the keep telling me the record says revoked and thats that. to make it worst x magestrates court say they have no record of their involvement so im not sure how else this could have accured.
a UK provisional Licence issued in 1999. My husband who holds a valid uk Licence was sitting next to me in the front passenger seat. My son and my daughter were sitting in the back seat. I was stopped because the police did not have the registered keepers details as the company I bought my car from did not send it to the DVLA. Admittedly I did not have an L plate displayed. But I was driving on my international licence.
The police slip given to me shows I was alone and not supervised, yet my husband , a qualified driver ( 7 years clean licence) was with me together with my two grown up children. I produced my papers at x Police Station on Monday morning, I was told that no consideration will be given to my International Licence and only my provisional licence will be taken into account and that both myself and my husband may be prosecuted. Please advise where me and my husband stand with regard to this alleged offence and of the way forward.
Your road traffic offence question: my insuarnce was due for renewal on the 26th , i got letter on the 10th stating i had not renewed i called them up to renew, they said i had to speak with collections first as i had an old debt on a caravan policy , i set up a standing order for this nand they said i could noe go back to renewals to renew , however when i spoke to renewals they stated collections hadnt put a note on the file and they had to speak to renewals before they could renew, i stated i couldnt hold on any longer and that everthing was ok with collections and i definatley wanted to renew , they said ok they would sort it and give me a call back ,i never got a call back so presumed everything was sorted as i have been with the same company for a few years and my policy renews automatically , however i got stopped on the 28th for no insurance on our car , i phoned the insurance company the next morning and they stated because they never spoke to me after they went back to renewals ( they said they called but coudnt leave a message.) they didnt renew it ? i complained etc butr they would not backdate stating they said they would call me back ? they also had 14 day from the 10th wen i called them to the 26th to send me a letter which they admit they didnt and they never tried to contact me except the once they rekon they got no answer and didnt leave a message.i was stupid and drove just around the corner without a supervisor driver , it was a spur of the moment thing to drop something off.
I have been directed by the DVLA to fill in a form and send a fee to acquire my license back.
My first thought was that I have already paid for my license and that I should not have to repay. They have responded in saying that they need to reprint the card with the offences printed on. I strongly disagree that I should have to pay the DVLA a fee when I have already fully paid the fines occurred for my convictions. This information was not clear to me at the time.
I am wondering where someone would legally in my position if they were to drive again. They have no active ban but have passed their license. Does a person HAVE to have a card or paper license in their possession. I am sure you would agree that a person could easily lose their licence in the morning and be pulled over for an incident or a routine check later in the day. What would happen to this person?
It was made very clear to me that I could not drive until my ban was over. Even if I applied for my license before the ban ended. It was not made clear if I could drive once the ban was over, even without a piece of paper to say that I have passed and hold a full UK driving license.
My girlfriend recently moved house and had to have her driving license re-printed with the new address on for less then Â£30. The DVLA over the phone have asked for Â£65. I have this phone conversation recorded. Are the DVLA right to do this?
Any help or clarification in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

This may sound a bit vague.
My brother was stopped by the police yesterday, no particular reason, but when they checked his details, he wasn't registered with dvla as having a valid uk license. He has admitted to me that he did get a twelve month ban about two years ago but he didn't apply for his license back, he's now been given a seven day ticket to produce his license, any advice would be much appreciated. thanks in advance,
Your road traffic offence question: i recieved a summon 4d abov offence. but it was not an intentional act, i drove cos of my partners and babies health. although i have pleaded guilty by post, am still awaiting decision.is there any way the matter can be resovled out of court.
What I do not understand is why he took the car away when :
1. I had parked the vehicle in front of my house, I was away from home.
2. He checked the all the necessary information about the car.
I think this is day light robbery by the Police for them to take the car away and then ask me to pay Â£150, even after I agreed to pay a fixed paenalty for not displaying the 'L' plate.
My question is was the police officer in order to impound my car just because I am a provisional Drivers licence holder and did not display the 'L' plate ?
Your road traffic offence question: just a question about riding a motorbike with insurance and L plates without a full liscence but will soon take the test and the bike is a higher power than 125cc engine?
what is the law on a higher power bike been used?
When I went to surrender my licence (paper and photo) at my local police station, I was told
that my licence had expired. Until then I wasn't aware of this, I thought that once I passed my test, that was it.
The PC kept my licence but suggested I pay the no insuarnce fixed penalty notice and wait for a separte summons for
driving with an expired licence.
My questions are:
1. Can I pay the no insurance fixed penatly notice as the PC suggested?
2. Does the driving with an expired licence summons offer the chance to pay it as a fixed penalty notice without going to court?
she gave me a yellow slip ( producer) which said I was unaccompanied but I was not unaccompanied.
In her statement to the court she says that "the passenger was niether over 21 not held a full licence so was not a suitable supervisor" Yet she never spoke to the passenger, she has no idea who he was ,how old or whether he held a licence or not and her producer says there was no passenger. She wrote down everything in her notebook but will have no note of speaking to the passenger
She is being completely inconsistent It is true that I did not have L plates ( iforgot to put them on) I do not want to have to plead guilty can you advise as to what is the best thing to do
it is a road traffic offense.
my offenses were:
riding without L plates.
riding without rear number plate.
riding without insurance.
and there was one other but i have sent of the papaer work so i do not have to go to court, althou im not sure that was a good idea?
anyway i would love a reply, please give me the best and worse news.
thank you very much
THe licence came back provisional!!! I have held a full uk licence since april 1990. But now have a court summons - what can I do when DVLA have apparently downgraded me to provisional?
Urgent help required
my car was then impounded.
the next day i went to the dvla and they explained that i would need to fill out a form and a new liecence would be issued (without having to resit a test etc).
i now wish to know how do i plead in this case as i thought i had a full uk liecence.
thanks in advance
How do I challenge this unsupervised charge, and what penalties am I facing, really worried, hoping to take some driving lessons, and don't want anything on my criminal record, I'm a medical student, and really don't want this to hurt my chances.
Advice is much appreciated.
if not and she rectifies this now, what would the potential consequences be of the DVLA discovering she has been driving without a licence for 9 months?
Hello, I was pulled over by the police for driving on a revoked licencse and when he checked my insurance cover there was some convictionsthat i didnt declare to the insurers.
