Lifting ban early?
May 6, 2010
I was charged and convicted for excess alcohol and given a 30 month driving ban from x 2009. I agreed to attend an approved driving course, (which would take 7 months off the ban) Given one year is almost up, can I appeal to the courts to lift the balance of the ban? Reasons being, travel to/from work, hardship, ill health, absitance since x 2009, Community Order being Revoked on Good Progress and successfully completed alcohol rehabilitation.

The earliest that the ban can be lifted is after you have served at least two years Im afraid.,
The court will struggle agree to lift the ban after 2 years unless you can convince them that there are very good grounds why they should.
Come back to me if you would like my help with this application after two years have passed.
