How long does a drink driving ban stay on your licence?
How long foes a DD Ban stay on your license?
Drink driving convictions stay on your licence for 11 years. After the 11 year period, it can be removed. The drink driving ban will only affect your car insurance quote for 5 years from the date you received the ban though. This is because insurers normally ask you to list any motoring convictions for the last 5 years. So after year 5, you don't need to list the DR10 conviction when looking for car insurance.
How long does drink driving high risk factor stay on your driving records?
Hi, please no lectures, my life is so different now than when this all happened, I had my last drink driving conviction 14yrs ago but had 2 within a short period...so dvla classed me as high risk
I failed the medical they sent me for 13 yrs ago, and stupidly just continued to drive without re applying for a new licence... I need to apply for my licence again, what i need to know is, will dvla still count me as a high risk even though those convictions were min 14yrs ago?? or will the new application be classed as a clean slate? ..thanks

Hello busymum. You are able to view your driving record on gov.co.uk and then you will be will able to see your current driving status. Do you know why you failed your medical? Good luck!

Here's an idea .....dont drink & drive in the first place then you won't have to worry about how long it takes to come off!! And saj you definitely shoudn't be allowed your license back EVER! been done for drink driving twice already and smoking cannabis! how would you feel if you killed someone whilst driving pissed or stoned!! give your head a shake!
hi i am a bit confused if anyone can help, if you been done for drink driving the second time and you go for a medical, does canabis have an effect on getting your licence back?
I was banned for drink driving in 2004, i failed a medical to get my license back, can i apply for my license?
