2.—(1) A court by whom the holder of a driving permit is convicted shall—

(a)if in consequence of the conviction or of the order of the court he is disqualified for holding or obtaining a driving licence, or

(b)if the court orders particulars of the conviction to be endorsed on any driving licence held by him,

send particulars of the conviction to the Secretary of State.

(2) A court shall in no circumstances enter any particulars in a driving permit.

3.—(1) The holder of a driving permit disqualified in consequence of a conviction or of the order of a court for holding or obtaining a driving licence shall, if so required by the court, produce his driving permit within five days, or such longer time as the court may determine, and the court shall forward it to the Secretary of State.

(2) The Secretary of State on receiving a permit forwarded under the foregoing sub-paragraph—

(a)shall record particulars of the disqualification on the permit, and

(b)send the holder's name and address, together with the said particulars, to the authority by whom the driving permit was issued, and

(c)shall retain the permit until the holder leaves Great Britain or until the disqualification ceases to have effect, whichever is the earlier.

(3) A person failing to produce a driving permit in compliance with this paragraph shall be guilty of an offence which shall be treated for the purposes of section 177 of the Road Traffic Act 1972 and of Part I of Schedule 4 thereto as an offence against the provision specified in column 1 of that Part as section 101(4) and he shall be liable to be prosecuted and punished accordingly.

4.—(1) A court, on ordering the removal under section 95(1) of the said Act of a disqualification for holding or obtaining a driving licence, shall, if it appears that particulars of the disqualification have been forwarded to the Secretary of State under paragraph 2 of this Schedule, cause particulars of the order also to be forwarded to him, and the Secretary of State shall transmit the particulars to the authority who issued the driving permit which the person whose disqualification is removed is shown as holding in the Secretary of State's records.

(2) The Secretary of State shall, where appropriate, enter any particulars so forwarded to him in any driving permit held by him in pursuance of paragraph 3 of this Schedule and shall then return the driving permit to the applicant.
