Driving Whilst Disqualified

Driving a motor vehicle on a road when disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence carries a maximum penality of:

  • a fine not exceeding £5000, and/or
  • a term of imprisonment of 6 months.

The Court may aslo disqualify the defendant for any period and/or until a driving test has been passed. In addition the Court must endorse with 6 penality points unless there are any special reasons.

This offence is dealt with by  the Magistrates Court only.

It is important to note that the Court deems this a very serious offence indeed, as it is seen as a clear breach of a court order not to drive. Almost always the Court consider all of its sentencing options including prison.
