114Disqualification on revocation of HGV driver’s licence

(1)Where in pursuance of section 113(2) of this Act the licensing authority revokes a heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence, the authority may—

(a)order the holder to be disqualified indefinitely or for such period as the authority thinks fit for holding or obtaining such a licence, or

(b)if—

(i)the licence is a full licence, and

(ii)it appears to the authority that, owing to the conduct or physical disability of the holder of the licence, it is expedient to require him to comply with the prescribed conditions applicable to provisional licences under this Part of this Act until he passes the prescribed test of competence to drive heavy goods vehicles of any class,

order him to be disqualified for holding or obtaining a full licence until he passes such a test.

(2)Where in pursuance of section 113(3) of this Act the licensing authority is required to revoke the heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence of a person under the age of 21, the authority must order that person to be disqualified for holding or obtaining such a licence until he attains the age of 21.

(3)Where the holder of a heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence is disqualified under subsection (1)(a) above, the licensing authority for the traffic area where he resides may, in such circumstances as may be prescribed, remove the disqualification.

(4)Where the holder of a full licence is disqualified under subsection (1)(b) above, a licensing authority must not afterwards grant him a full licence to drive a heavy goods vehicle of any class unless satisfied that he has since the disqualification passed the prescribed test of competence to drive vehicles of that class, and until he passes that test any full licence obtained by him shall be of no effect.

(5)If, while the holder of a heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence is disqualified under subsection (2) above, the circumstances prescribed for the purposes of section 113(3) of this Act cease to exist in his case, the licensing authority of the traffic area where he resides must, on an application made to the authority in that behalf, remove the disqualification.

(6)So long as the disqualification under subsection (1)(a) or (2) above of the holder of a heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence continues in force, a heavy goods vehicle driver’s licence must not be granted to him and any such licence obtained by him shall be of no effect.
