Banned from driving for 3 years because of 2nd offence in 10 years, how do I re-apply for licence?
I was banned from driving for 3 yrs in 1996 which was my second offence in ten years. I have never re-applied for license back since but now want to. How do I do this? Hear there is a medical now. As I could have re-applied for my licence back in 1999, does this apply to me? What should I do next?
If your driving ban has expired, then you need to request your driving licence from the DVLA. You should fill out a D1 application form and send the correct fee as well. The application form can be obtained from Post Office branches or by telephoning DVLA or printing it from their website.
Once they receive your application, they will notify you if you need to take a medical test. If you don't require one, then you will receive your driving licence through the post within a couple of weeks.
Good luck with your application and let me know how things progress.
