Earn a driving licence do not lose it

Driving licence is a privilege and not a right

Waiting to receive your first provisional driving licence is a part of life that we need to endure whilst the passage between provisional and full can seem like an eternity to achieve for some. 

However, qualifying for your full driving licence is exactly that, a qualification obtained after a period of learning and not just a consequence of life that some people see as a right, achieved by no more than just reaching a certain age. 

Need to earn and respect licence

A driving licence allows us as drivers to reach places and goals that we had previously only dreamed about or relied on others to manage. 

Driving along roads never previously driven or travelling the same tired routes, mean the same respect for other road users and situations must to be acknowledged. 

It is vitally important to maintain the same standards learnt whilst taking driving lessons and consider some kind of further driver training throughout your driving career. 

The freedom to drive unaided with the sun on your face and the windows wound down is an experience only ever appreciated when we first pass our driving test or lose our driving licence. 

Loose it and the consequences are

Driving a car carries with it legal requirements, and you must satisfy these at all times or you will suffer the consequences. 

The loss of a driving licence could mean losing a job plus increased financial burden and possible stigma as a consequence of a particular driving offence. 

Premier league footballers such as Bolton's Chris Eagles, Barry Bannan and ex Arsenal legend Paul Merson have recently lost their driving licence for speeding, crashing and drink driving respectively. 

New drivers should also note that special rules apply for two years after passing a driving test. 

Further details of offences and subsequent penalty points can be found at Highway Code/Penalties
