Applying For Licence After Ban

The clock is ticking and the time limit for appealing is a strict immovable deadline of 21 days from sentencing!

Applying for Return of Licence Pending Appeal

One of the factors that may influence your decision to appeal the conviction you received is that you have been disqualified from driving. Once a notice of appeal has been filed, we can also apply for licence after ban to be reinstated pending the outcome of the appeal. Such applications are almost always granted by the court unless they feel there is a medical reason why you should not be driving. Geoffrey Miller Solicitors can help you when applying for licence after ban. If you wish for us to make an application for your licence to be reinstated whilst you await the outcome of your appeal, please let us know at the time of making your enquiry with us.

Applying for Return of Licence Following a Driving Disqualification

Even though you may have been disqualified for a number of years following a motoring conviction it is possible to apply for the return of your licence early and Geoffrey Miller Solicitors can help you get your licence and your life back.

This application is unrelated to the application we make alongside an appeal. An application for the early reinstatement of your driving licence must be made to the court that imposed the original ban and they will consider the following criteria:

  • The offender’s character and post-conviction conduct
  • The nature of the offence for which he was convicted; and
  • Any other circumstances of the case

An application may only be made if:

  • Two years have passed since disqualification of four years or less was ordered; or
  • One half of the period of disqualification has passed, if four years to ten years disqualification was ordered;
  • Or five years have passed in any other case

Even if your application is refused, it is possible to renew the application after a period of three months from the date of refusal.


Geoffrey Miller Solicitors are happy to assist with such applications for a fixed fee the level of which is dependant on whether or not medical evidence is required. Please call or email us to seek further advice in relation to your own specific circumstances.
