I recently got convicted for no licence and no insurance. the offence was commited before i passed my driving test. as im told 6 points = revoke of licence. but as this was commited before i passed my test can my licence still be revoked? the conviction was only just given to me 4 days ago

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Have the DVLA revoked?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No thats why i ask as the offence was commited before i got my licence
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
On the face of your circumstances, that would not trigger revocation.
The Court do not revoke anyway. The DVLA do.
If the offence was before you passed your test then it would not trigger revocation.
It might be that the Court just made an error on the point as they do not usually adjudicate upon revocations and also Magistrates do generally have absolutely no idea of any kind and the entire system of trial by Magistrates should be shut down. If an offence isn't serious enough for a proper trial in the Crown Court then it shouldn't be prosecuted at all.
Can I clarify anything for you?
