Title: revoked licence?
Post by: antj2k9 on 03:14, Sat 04 April 2009
driving home from maidstone tonight almost got to my front door and got blue lights behind me, after pulling over and getting a ear bashing for not wearing my seatbelt. lol

They run the normal checks on me and it comes back that my licence was revoked in jan 09 so looks like ive been driving round with no clue that i have no licence for the last 3months, dose anyone know what ive got to do to get it back?

Police told me that they dont know why and im not going to be able to speek to the dvla till monday now, ive been driveing almost 8years and only thought they could revoke your licence if you get more then 6 points in your first 2 years or for medical reasons and none of those apply to me, im not at all happy was ment to be driveing my 5 to the south of france on the 20th got everything booked up already, dose anyone know if i would be band in france lol?

You been caught by any speed camera's ?
But then you'd have had something in the post... surely they'd have to notify you if your licence is revoked ??

If your licence has been revoked surely your insurance is now void and they would of impounded the car?

there was a big write up about that no so long ago with people not knowing that there licences were revolked as the dvla have put short dates on over 1 million of licences and when i seen i wrote up there was a lot of complaints about this and in the write up it did tell everyone to check there licences BEFORE driving.....
thats why they ask you to keep your address on your licence up to date

and to your question will you be banned in france yes you cannot drive there sorry mate

Ah yes, maybe the licence 'ran out' so it hopefully should be ok for ya... Unless like i say you have been caught a few times speeding, then it's all gone to the old address, i think a call to the DVLA is a deffo Monday !!

no revoked licence is were you acumilate more than 6 points (with n two years off passing) and 12 after

i got caught with no insurance after my d/d didnt pay the canceled it and didnt ring me or send a letter

any how i got 6 points and licence revoked

i had to sit my theory and test again

and then you still get 6 points witch i refuse to declare as i wasnt told i was uninsured

ring dvla an just ask mate

yer i read about the 6 points in the first 2 years but thought if you drove longer like i have if you get 12 points you just get a year band automatically and the police said im not banned my licence has just been revoked, im dreading having to do my tests again. lol

I passed both first time when i was 17 but dont know if i could do it again, do i have to wait to re-apply of can i get a provisional soon as i like?

I got pulled over because my car was linked with drugs. This is the reason they gave for stopping me.

Turns out that my car isn't linked to drugs, just that it had shown up as being pulled over about 3 months previously and the copper had made the assumption that it might of been drugs related.

What a dick.

lol i got puuled in mine about 7weeks ago because of my metal press plates he said it made the car look like it was regestered in france all because of the F on the blue strip lol so i removed it and put a GB one on  :lol:  :wink:  :wink:  

i think they pull these cars because they either havent seen one for years or they havent seen one before lol

both times ive been stopped in me e30 once for speeding past a copper...not good and he let me off then stopped by vosa bike cops that said my zorst was to loud lol, then gave me a ticket for tyres battary and exhaust,
and they were well friendly, just think its the attude you give them when they first speak to you, give them the "oh what the fuck you pigs want now" and there treat you bad, i just play cool have a laugh and show i got nought to hide
