My ban is due to be finished on the 15th Jan 2020, I was a Hgv driver before I got banned, this is my 2nd ban, first in 2010, am I likely to get my hgv licence back?
Neither of the offences were in a Hgv, both in a car, and yes the second time I got 40 months, reduced to 30 with the drink drive course, which I have completed. I also provided samples both times. So no refusal to give.What will happen will depend on your circumstances.
Were you driving a HGV for either of these offences? If you were, it could make it much harder to get your HGV back.
If the last offence was failing to supply this could make it harder.
Presumably you got a 3 year ban. I would expect you to be asked to appear at a conduct hearing before your Traffic Commissioner to explain what happened. If you seem suitably contrite (they like to hear you have done a Drink Drive Rehabilitation Course)
I would Always attend. If they read your letter and have queries, they will have to make a best guess and will only go on what is in the letter. If you are there and they have any queries you can answer them straight away. A sincere personal apology works best!
Phew, I was worried that they would reject my HGV licence, I can live with a delay on the return of my HGV as I am in a job I actually like at the moment... so no big rush to return to the trucks.NO NO NO. They will not ban you for life, but if you get a third conviction they may well do so best behaviour in the drinks front for life......
You will get a delay in the HGV element, your aim is to keep that to a minimum. As I said before, 2-3 months is a good result for you, but your car licence part is not delayed.
