why was it revoked?
Ask Your Own UK Law Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
due to going to court for careless driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident, i have held my licence for under 2 years and already had three points, i was given 5 points and a fine for this offence, under new driver law, my licence can be revoked once it has 6 points or more
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 8 years ago

In that case you cannot get the revocation overturned. There is an automatic revocation at 6 points and there is no exceptional hardship test.

 

But you can sit the test again immediately. You are not disqualified from driving. You just need to sit the test again.
