i think yes but dont know for sure as when I went to court didnt have solicitor and my english was very basic.I got letter teling me that I will have to retest after 12months.I went to Poland and done tests there as at that time ni didnt have test in polish lang.what is strange that I have been stopped by Police and they never said anything.I have got wrriten wcaution for speeding.I have been driving like this for 7 years.If I would have known that I have to pass test here I would have done that long time ago.
The DVLNI IN Coleraine have informed us that you were disqualified from driving in NI from 23/05/06-22/05/07 and that you have never resat your driving test in NI.As result the DVLNI have sent your Polish driving licence back to the authorities in Poland.This means as you have been driving as a disqualified driver in NI you are now liable for prosecution.
This is exact copy of letter that I have received.
i have to retest as court decided that.all I want is my polish driving licence back.and i have no problem with doing test again.this brings us back to original question.can they take my licence and send back to Poland or not?
Bottom line is that I want my licence to be send back to me as it is valid in other countries and going for my holidays in 2 weeks time and it is very unlikely that will have spare 1000 stg to spend on tickets to Poland on such a short notice.
I came back to Poland and resat test again and Ni is telling me that it is not valid as I have to do it here?
is then Polish driving licence different than NI?only reason I didnt pass test in ni was language barrier.Could you give me legal document stating that Polish licence is different to other EU countries and test passed in Poland not valid?This is what i dont understand.I need legal document stating that court can force me to pass test in NI.I was under impression that we live in EU and have same rights?
