Testimonials


Having been wrongly accused of dangerous driving, Kirsty Ferguson managed to negotiate a reduced guilty plea to careless driving which, though still unfair, was more palatable than the higher charge. I thank her for her attention and support, and would recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in such an invidious position.

Getting Your Licence Back

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

How to get your licence back after being disqualified

You must apply for a new licence, even if your old licence has not run out.

Paper Licence Holders

You will automatically be sent application forms D27 and D750, 56 days before the period of disqualification ends. You must complete both forms and enclose the appropriate fee. You must also enclose original documentation confirming your identity and a passport sized colour photograph taken against a plain light background. Send your completed application and fee to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AB or you may be able to use the Post Office Checking Service.

Photocard Licence Holders

You will automatically be sent application form D27, 56 days before the period of disqualification ends. You must complete the D27 form and enclose the appropriate fee. Send your completed application and fee to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AB.

Note: If your name has changed since your last licence was issued you must complete application form D27 and photocard application form D750 and enclose the appropriate fee. You must also enclose original documentation confirming your new name. There is no requirement to supply a new photograph.

If for any reason you do not receive a D27 form, you may apply using a D1 application form in its place.

DVLA will make medical enquiries if you have:

a) been disqualified for driving, or being in charge of a vehicle, when the level of alcohol in the body equalled or exceeded :-

i.) 87.5 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath, or

ii.) 200 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood, or

iii) 267.5 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine.

b) two disqualifications within the space of 10 years for drinking and driving, or being in charge of a vehicle whilst unfit through drink.

c) one disqualification for refusing/failing to supply a specimen for analysis.

If you are not sure when your disqualification ends, contact the court which disqualified you.
