I have read that after 5 years I can apply to court to have a DR10 taken off my licence. The conviction is over 5 years ago and I have had no offences since that time. Incidentally I was only 1mg over the limit (81mg) if this also goes in my favour. Please could you tell me whether this is feasible?
I’m afraid that drink driving offences stay on your licence for 11 years from the date of offence. They are effective for 10 of those years and if you get a conviction for a similar matter within that 10 year period you get a minimum 3 year ban.
I think you maybe confusing the rehabilitation period for the offence. You are classed as rehabilitated and the conviction is spent after 5 years if you got a fine. That’s a different issue to the ban and endorsement effects.
