I am a new driver, will I lose my driving licence?

If you reach six or more penalty points within two years of passing your test the DVLA will automatically revoke your licence on being notified by HMCTS who have a legal obligation to forward your licence to the DVLA in Swansea. If they make the decision to revoke your licence you will have to obtain a provisional licence and drive as a learner until you have retaken both the theory and practical tests to regain your full driving licence.

Please note that provisional licence holders are eligible to attend a Driver Retraining Course should they fit the criteria.
