If you have passed your driving test within the last 2 years, you are a probationary driver. During this probationary period of 2 years, if you acquire 6 penalty points or more, your driving licence will be revoked.
If your driving licence is revoked, you will need to pass your theory test and practical driving test again before being able to apply for your driving licence back. You will be unable to drive for the period in which it takes you to do so.
Having your driving licence revoked however, does not wipe your licence clean. The penalty points obtained prior to your driving licence being revoked will remain on your driving licence for the usual 3 years from the commission of the offence.
For all of us, having your driving licence revoked causes significant problems. Especially if you are required to have a driving licence for your job or you have children or other care responsibilities.
