I have completed my driving ban, how do I get my licence back now?
I have completed the duration of my ban, how do i get my full licence back. My ban was in the first year of driving, do i need to retake my test? Do i need to fill out any forms and where would i obtain these?
You just need to fill out a D1 form (it's the application form for a new licence) which is available from the Post Office (you can request it by calling DVLA as well). Fill out the form, enclose the correct fee and send it to DVLA and they will send your licence back.
You will need to retake your driving test if the judge which sentenced you asked that you resit your test. If you're not sure whether you need to retake the test, you can always contact DVLA and ask them.
