Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I am sorry but there isn't. If you acquire six points in the first two years of driving then that leads to revocation. There is no exceptional hardship test and no appeal. It is automatic. Courts and the DVLA have no discretion.
You are revoked though rather than banned so you can take your test again and be back on the road which would be faster than an appeal even if that were possible.
I'm very sorry but that is your position.
Can I clarify anything for you?

Thank you for your time and reply does it mean my no claims from the previous years will now be cancelled?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
YOu haven't made a claim.
The points and the revocation will have an adverse impact upon your insurance though.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok thank you so if I retake my test and get my new license I will still have 2 year no claims but my premiums will go up due to the points? Is that correct?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, yov will have to disclose that yovr insvrance has been cancelled.
