Probationer speeding/motoring offences

Will a probationer driver lose their licence?

For two years after they pass their driving test drivers are 'probationer drivers'. The standards expected of probationers are very high; you receive no allowance for the fact that you have only just passed your driving test. If you commit a speeding offence or other motoring offence as a probationer you need expert legal assistance to help you keep your licence.

Can I lose my licence even if I have no points?

Yes. A first motoring offence can lead to you losing your licence. If you receive six penalty points within the two year probationary period or a ban of over fifty-six days, your driving licence is automatically revoked.

The consequences a revoked driving licence

If your licence is revoked you are in the same position that you were before you started learning to drive. You will have to retake all parts of your driving test including the theory and the practical driving lesson. This will mean loss of time and the enormous inconvenience of losing your form of transport (and possibly your job).
