Went to Mr Walker after having the misfortune to instruct two other firms before him. Needless to say the other firms did not provide me with any real hope or decent advice.
, Glasgow Justice of the Peace

Thank you for bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. I do not feel that I have in any way "Got one over" on the system but rather that I have been prevented from becoming the victim of an injustice. I shall most definitely recommend you to anyone in need of a road traffic lawyer.

Get A Disqualification Removed Early

Always ask a lawyer if you are unsure about any of the advice and information provided here.

If you have been disqualified for more than 2 years, you can apply to the court that gave you the last disqualification to have it removed after a minimum period. This is:

  • 2 years if you were disqualified for less than 4 years
  • half the period of disqualification if it is less than 10 but not less than 4 years
  • 5 years if you were disqualified for 10 years or more.

In Scotland you require to Petition the court that removed your right to drive and ask them to consider allowing you to drive again due to your present circumstances. This is not pushing at an open door. An experienced solicitor is well worth employing from the outset to ensure the best arguments are put forward on your behalf.

You can do it yourself but we really would suggest that you should invest the fee in getting a good road traffic lawyer on board. If you fill in the online form above we will send you details of how to petition to restore your licence yourself. We strongly recommend that you receive further legal advice on this issue before incurring the costs of lodging your petition with the court that imposed the ban.
