Drivers Licence Revoked by Home Office

Home Office Revoked Your Drivers Licence?

We can help.


Section 47 of the Immigration Act 2014 amended the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Road Traffic (Northern Ireland) Order 1981 to provide a power for the Secretary of State (in practice the Driver Vehicle Authority (DVA) in Northern Ireland and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) in the rest of the UK) to revoke UK issued driving licences where the holder is subject to immigration control and has no leave to be in the UK. Both full licences and provisional licences may be revoked.

In practice, revocation will follow a referral made by the Home Office’s Interventions and Sanctions Directorate (ISD) to DVLA or DVA.

ISD make the referral when their records show that the individual in question is illegally present in the UK. Before making the referral, ISD will write to the individual to tell them:

  • they are at risk of having their UK driving licence revoked
  • who to contact in ISD if they believe their licence should not be revoked
