Dangerous Driving

  • What is dangerous driving?
    Driving is considered dangerous when the standard is far below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver, and that it would be obvious to such a driver how dangerous it was.
  • What is the maximum punishment for dangerous driving?
    The maximum punishment for dangerous driving is two years’ imprisonment. For causing death by dangerous driving, this increases to a maximum custodial sentence of 14 years and a minimum two year driving ban.
  • I’ve been banned for dangerous driving. Do I need to reapply for a licence?
    Yes, your licence has been revoked by this punishment. You will need to apply for a provisional licence and pass an extended driving test to have your full licence restored.
