Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay.

This is 79 in breath?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yeah. never had any convictions before nor have i ever committed an offense
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Thanks.

If it is 79 in breath then the ban period is 17-22 months.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

However, if you are offered the drink driving course then you can reduce the ban period by one quarter.

You are at the higher end of the sentencing bracket though so I would expect the Bench to be looking at about 20 months roughly.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

There will also be a fine and costs but you are obviously concerned about the ban.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
after the ban, will I receive my Full UK Driving licence back?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, they are not going to put you on an extended ban.

I can't imagine the DVLA will revoke for a reading of 79.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I have only been driving 1 year and 3 months, will i still get back it ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, the new driver scheme doesn't apply.
