Will My Driving Licences Be Revoked?


Hi, firstly i would like to thank you for your time.

I was involved in an accident approx. 6 months ago, where it was my fault. I was driving in the wrong lane, and decided to turn into the correct lane. (There was an arrow pointing to what I thought was a merge lane, but on further inspection on Google earth was showing that it was in fact the lane ending.)

I slipped on the loose chippings due to being in the lane by the arrow, and crashed into some roadworks including a digger :(. This resulted in a highway agency worker being injured due to a flying crash barrier.

I have a full motorcycle license held for 2 1/2 years, unfortunately gained 3 points for speeding whilst I had my provisional :(. I have also recently passed my car test within the last 7 months.

Now my question is, weather when I go to court there is a probation period on my driving license, as I already went through that with my full bike license. If so I received 3 or more points, will I lose both driving licences??

Baring in mind that my current job is a motorcycle courier and I do have a letter from the company detailing that I will lose my job if banned.

Louise Says:

You shouldn’t lose both driving licences if you get more points for this. In theory the only risk is that you get a discretionary ban for the offence itself. Whenever the court has a power to impose penalty points they can impose a ban if they think the offence itself is serious.

I need to check the date that you passed your bike test though? If the due care and attention offence happened within the first two years of passing the bike test then you will be at risk of revocation.

You suggest that you passed your bike test 2 1/2 years ago, but that this offence happened 6 months ago – that may make it a close call. Tell me the date you passed your bike test and the date of this alleged offence and I will get back to you.
