Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

They will probably summons you for having no licence and no insurance. Even if you did have insurance it will be invalidated by the absence of a licence.

The no insurance carries 6 points or a short ban and a fine.

The no licence carries 3 but they will run concurrently so only 6 will be active on your licence.

That will not lead to revocation when you take your test though because you got these points before you passed but it will rack up your insurance premiums.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Yes, you won't lose your licence unless the court bans you and that will be for a short time.

But it will rack up insurance.

Its probably going to be about £300 - £400 roughly plus cost of £85.

The ban, if imposed, is probably going to be about 28 days.
