Under section 103 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is an offence to drive a vehicle whilst disqualified or to knowingly permit a disqualified driver to drive a vehicle.

This is a very serious offence which in certain circumstances can attract a prison sentence of up to 12 months imprisonment in addition to the imposition of up to six penalty points and a substantial period of disqualification.

Even if a disqualified driver does not have a defence open to them it is possible to rely on the legal doctrine of ‘special reasons’ (see separate subject heading) with a view to seeking to persuade the court to lessen the severity of any sentence due to be imposed in respect of an offence under this section.
