Dear all I am new and dont know what position i am in? I was caught twice in my first year of driving and my licence was revoked! I was just sent a letter saying i cant drive anymore. I took mu licence again nd passed in Nov 2006. The paper part of my licence is not showing endorsements and recently when i changed my address i was told by the DVLA i have a completley clean licence.

I got done by a camera on the road side with a very smug copper yesterday. What will happen to me now?

Im worried a whole sh*t storm i going to come down on me now!! Please help me what can i do? do i need to worry?

Yeh i have had a look at all the info problem is i have not received anything yet - its my previous that im worried about. No where seems to state any legislation againt new drivers that were revoked that re-obtain a licence that then faces further speeding fines..

A driver's probationary period of two years from first becoming qualified comes to an automatic end if their licence is revoked and they retake and pass another test.

Once a retest has been passed, the driver is no longer subject to the New Drivers' rules and would be able to accumulate up to 12 points before the imposition of a totting ban became a possibility. But its important to note that a revocation under the New Drivers' legislation would not in itself result in the pre-existing penalty points (ie those which resulted in the revocation) being wiped from a driver's licence.

For most offences (speeding, contravening red traffic lights, dangerous parking etc), points are valid (for totting purposes) for 3 years, must remain on a driver's licence for 4 years and are generally required to be disclosed to insurers for 5 years.

If the DVLA claim that your licence is completely clean, then they either consider the points to have expired (ie more than 4 years from date of offence), or they have cocked up.
