‘Buying back your licence’

If you have had a driving licence disqualification after an offence like drink driving or driving whilst disqualified you may apply for the removal of the disqualification or return of your driving licence (I have heard this referred to as 'buying back your licence').  This can be done after 2 years for a ban less than 4 years; after half the period for a ban over 4 and less than 10 years; and after 5 years for a longer ban.  I was successful yesterday for a client with his third drink drive conviction returning the licence after 4 years rather than the 5 years.
