If you have lost your license as a learner driver, you would lose this for a period of time in which you cannot hold or obtain another license. Even if you passed your restricted license, that does not qualify you to drive until the time period of loss of license ordered under the learner driver disqualification has expired. You need to be very careful because the penalty for driving while disqualified will add a further period of disqualification
