Avoid the DVLA revoking your Driving Licence
As a new driver your licence is particularly important to you but your driving licence is automatically revoked by the DVLA if you build up six or more penalty points within two years of passing your first driving test. We have an excellent success rate in avoiding this by persuading courts not to endorse with points.

Revocation of your driving licence will take immediate effect once 6 points are reached. Your licence remains revoked indefinitely and will not be reinstated until an application to re-apply for your licence is made. When a new application is made, a provisional licence will be reissued (endorsed with the points) and you will then will be subject to the terms of a provisional licence. When both the theory and practical driving tests are passed, a full licence will be reissued but the points will remain valid for 3 years from the date of the offence.
Revocation is automatic at 6 points and neither the Police, the DVLA nor the Court have any discretion. If you accept a Fixed Penalty Notice which results in 6 points being reached within your first 2 years of driving, your licence will be revoked without any prior warning or a Court appearance.
Avoiding points could avoid revocation of your licence. It is advisable to seek legal assistance if you are close to going to Court.
We have had many successes helping clients keep their licence and may well be able to help you if you are in a similar position, depending on your circumstances.
