Hi, I found out today that I had not notified the DVLA about my new address and that I have been disqualified from driving for not responding to their mails to the hold address. Can I appeal this?
JA: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?
Customer: this is in the UK
JA: Do you need to appear in court?
Customer: I have not spoken to the court yet, will do that in the morning, found out at 6pm tonight when trying to arrange a hire car
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes it is possible.
At least as it stands you end up with a clean licence
