New Driver Revocation | New Driver Revoked Licence
If you are a new driver and have recently had your driving licence revoked, our New Driver Revocation Solicitors may be able to help you.
In accordance with The Road Traffic (New Drivers Act) 1995 a motorist that passes their driving test (Practical & Theory Test) will be classed as a ‘New Driver’ for a period of 2 years and will be subject to a probationary period during the first 2 years after receiving a Full Driving Licence.
A New Driver that accumulates 6 or more penalty points within this two-year probationary period will have their Driving Licence Automatically Revoked by the DVLA.

If your driving licence is revoked, this could have serious repercussions on your job, your family life and education.

The DVLA – New Driver Revoked Licence
The DVLA is The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and is the organisation of the United Kingdom Government that is responsible for maintaining a database of drivers in Great Britain. It is also required to keep a database of vehicles for the United Kingdom, the DVLA was formed in 1965. When a new driver accumulates 6 penalty points due to a Driving Offence, the DVLA will automatically exercise the powers of the Secretary of State to revoke the driving licence of the new driver.
The Sentencing Council
When dealing with newly qualified drivers, the Magistrates’ Court is given the following guidance by The Sentencing Council:
“Drivers who incur six points or more during the two-year probationary period after passing the driving test will have their licence revoked automatically by the Secretary of State; they will be able to drive only after application for a provisional licence pending the passing of a further test (Road Traffic (New Drivers) Act 1995).
An offender liable for an endorsement which will cause the licence to be revoked under the new drivers’ provisions may ask the court to disqualify rather than impose points. This will avoid the requirement to take a further test. Generally, this would be inappropriate since it would circumvent the clear intention of Parliament.”
Revocation of A Driving Licence
It is important to note that the Magistrates’ Court is not issuing a Driving Ban, instead, the DVLA is revoking the driving licence due to the accumulation of 6 penalty points within the two year period.
If your driving license is revoked by the DVLA, you are not permitted to drive, until you have re-applied for your provisional licence and you will be required to successfully complete the practical and theory test again. This will understandably result in further payments of assessment fees and could take several months to complete.
Reaching 6 Penalty Points
Motoring offences attract a range of penalty points, depending on the nature and severity of the offence. Certain driving offences provide the Magistrates’ Court with a range of penalty points that can be imposed.
The New Driver Provisions do not differentiate between whether the penalty points are accumulated in one driving offence, or because of two less serious motoring offences. The New Driver Rules will only seek to identify whether 6 or more penalty points have been accrued within the two-year period.
A motorist may commit two minor offences, which attract three points each or one offence which attracts six points, the result would be the same, the driving licence would be automatically revoked by the DVLA.

Excellent service that we received from Kang & Co Solicitors. Advice was done methodically and easy to understand with a great result. Thank you.
We required advice and representation at a Public Inquiry with the Birmingham Traffic Commissioner and appointed Manjinder of Kang & Co after reading an article that he had published on Transport online. He achieved the best possible outcome for us at the Inquiry – our license was not revoked and our fleet was not curtailed.
Kang & Co Solicitors are very efficient and punctual. They went out their way with their services. My friend recommended them and I will indeed do the same. Excellent quality. Anything I didn’t understand was explained to me. They went out of their way with very short notice for the work I required.
Manjinder and the team at Kang & Co are absolutely fantastic. From my first 10 minute consultation right through to the final outcome I felt like I was in great hands. The team asked everything they needed from me and formed a defence for my case. I don’t feel like I could of done it without the team at Kang & Co.
Kang & Co are worth every penny. I have had a very good experience with these solicitors, helping me reduce my inevitable driving ban to as low as I could of possibly wished for.They were very supportive throughout the entire process and I owe them a big thank you for helping me to retain my job.
I would like to say firstly a Big Thank you to Kang and Co especially Mr Manjinder Kang Solister and Mr Thomas Wheeler Barrister an excellent job done. They both know the laws and the perfect outcome. I feel that to have the best is to get the best and this company definitely fits this.
I believe Kang & Co Solicitors is based upon transparency, trust and integrity. I can assure you will receive an excellent bespoke service from beginning to end also have some light at the end of the tunnel during a time when the family is at its knees. My sincere regards to the entire Michelin 5* team at Kang & Co.
From start to finish they kept me in the loop and was very straight to the point which I liked, not leading you on that you get with other firms. One firm I would highly recommend and I would very much be using in the future if needed. Thank you to Mr. Kang and his team .
An extremely professional service – full and honest appraisal of situation and a positive outcome. Highly recommend!
A very straightforward process with minimal stress, given the circumstances. I was listened to, my questions were answered clearly and I was advised of the best and worst case scenarios right from the start. I was very pleased with my representation and the outcome achieved was points and a fine as opposed to a disqualification.
The combination of hard work, expertise and commitment to achieve the best possible result ended up in my acquittal at trial. I believe instructing Kang & Co. at the time that I did made all of the difference in securing a successful outcome. I would definitely recommend Kang and Co. if you need legal representation.
Kang and Co were exceptional in helping me retain my licence after an unfair dash-cam case was brought against me. I was faced with 6 point, a ban and £800 fine, and I received none of these. Win, win, win! Very happy with them.
I cannot thank Manjinder for all the help and support he gave us prior to and up to my husbands court date. This could of been a very testing time should my husband not have won his case. Special thanks to Mr Shoker who was fantastic on the day.
We were very pleased with their service & if ever we needed a solicitor in the future we would definitely use Kang & Co Solicitors.
The preparation on my case was second to none, this began from the moment I contacted Manjinder Kang and his team, and they were very proactive to look into my case ASAP. The quality of representation in Court at Court was excellent, I was assigned with a Barrister, and someone who had extensive experience in this field. The outcome of your case 6 points, although I was expecting a ban as minimum.
The whole process was very easy and professional from start to finish. All my questions were answered in a way I could understand and I always felt reassured. I got the least sentence I could have imagined due to all of your help and I am very satisfied because of this. Thank you for your help throughout.
I have previously dealt with Carla Riozzi at Kang & Co and would highly recommend her. She was professional and knowledgeable about the law. She kept me up to date with my case and I found her very approachable. I would definitely instruct this firm again. Thank you for your assistance.
I was summonsed for a speeding offence on the M6 toll where the speed recorded was essentially an automatic disqualification. I pleaded guilty and engaged the services of Kang and Co to plead my case not to be disqualified from driving. My outcome was positive and I retained my licence. I would recommend Kang and Co to anyone who has the need for Legal Representation.
Manjinder Kang was absolutely fantastic and i could not have had better representation during my case. I have already recommended his firm to all my contacts for any issues relating to road transport law.
Very clearly explained the process, took his time over getting a very clear and accurate history of events and mitigation. Barrister on the day was well prepared, went over key mitigation and presented it well in court, an excellent advocate. Barrister clearly explained possible outcomes and most realistic outcome. Excellent service from initial contact to finishing the court case. Would recommend to anyone.
For personal service, security and efficiency I recommend Kang & Co. A complete service with the comfort of a clear and understandable process directed by high quality staff.
Professional from start to finish. High attention to detail within my case despite it being very clean cut charge wise. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Kang & Co Solicitors. Manjinder Kang helped me in a difficult situation and nothing was too much trouble.
An Excellent Service, Mr Kang is a highly sought solicitor. Very knowledgable about the subject to hand , and extremely confident with the advice given to me at the time of a stressful situation.
I would recommend Kang and Co Solictors above any other company I’ve spoken too. Above all I got the outcome I desired based upon Mr. Kang expertise.
Excellent service delivered by a dependable team. Found them online and no regrets with the quality of representation they offered throughout the case. Always arrived early and ensured good communication at every stage of representation. Corporate service but no hidden charges so you know what you can afford right from initial meeting.
Amazing service overall. I was impressed with how fast I had responses from emails with any queries or questions. On the day of my meeting with Kang & Co all options were made very clear and the advice I was given provided the result I wanted! I highly recommend Kang & Co, especially for motoring convictions.
I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years. Mr Kang gave my nephew detailed advice on obtaining the necessary evidence for his court case. Mr Shocker represented him at the magistrates court and instead of being banned he received a modest fine. All within a week or two!
I highly recommend Kang & Co Solicitors. From the outset communication was excellent. Manjinder Kang was very professional, polite and showed the highest level of integrity throughout the process. Thank you for the representation in court, which was a must.
I would highly recommend using Kang & Co Solicitors. I received high quality services for the duration of my case, with the right level of honesty and reassurance. All advice provided was extremely clear and Mr Kang always went above and beyond to ensure that I had fully understood any matters discussed.
Mr Kang who met with me and Mr Wheeler who represented me in court were brilliant, could not have survived the experience without them! Not sure how anyone could, as I, approach an experience like this was for me, a first time appearance in court without seeking help, advice and representation from a lawyer/s such as these two great examples.
