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 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 and then you will be will able to see your current driving status. Do you know why you failed your medical? Good luck!
