Can I apply for early return of Licence ?


Do I have to apply To get it returned by 01.07.2014?

In short, I'm afraid not.

There is really no way around this sadly.

You had 21 days from the date of sentence to appeal the ruling. Sadly you did not. In fairness, there wouldn't have been much point because you didn't really have grounds for an appeal but nevertheless that was your challenge and your only way to reduce a period of totting.

There is an application you can make for removal from disqualification but you have to have been upon a ban for two years to bring that application.

I'm very sorry but thats your position.

You don't have to apply but you do have to wait until its sent back to you by the DVLA.

Can I clarify anything for you?
