Driving Whilst Disqualified
The Road Traffic Act 1988 states that a person is guilty of driving whilst disqualified is he or she has either obtained a licence or driven a motor vehicle on a road whilst they are banned from driving.
The Courts take this offence very seriously, and you can still be found guilty even if you weren’t aware that you were banned from driving. Can I go to prison for driving whilst disqualified?
Yes, it is possible to go to prison for driving whilst disqualified, especially if this is combined with another offence, such as dangerous driving.
The minimum penalty for this sort of offence is that your driving ban will be extended. You may also receive a fine and extra penalty points on your licence.
