Is this affects when I apply for UK driving license? ILR?

Are you there?
Expert:  james bruce replied 11 days ago.

OK, the licence was not a problem. As long as the international licence was still I=valid and you had not been in the UK more than a year then you can have an international licence and the provisional licence.

The main issue here was no valid insurance that carries 6 points automatically.
