Well that was an incredibly stupid thing to do wasn’t it.

As soon as you pass your test you will probably have your licence revoked, be banned from driving for a while and have to retake your test once your ban has expired.

You’ll also have to declare it to your car insurance when you do eventually get a full licence and your car insurance will be significantly more expensive as a result.

If he gets a ban then yes, once he passes his test it'll instantly be revoked. If it's points however, I believe they just sit there (even if it's more than six, so long as it's less than twelve) and you still keep your licence once you pass. The caveat being that *any* points accrued after passing will cause him to have his licence revoked.

If a new driver incurs 6 points within their first 2 years I think the licence gets revoked anyway.

I'm not sure what the punishment for driving unsupervised on a provisional is, but driving without insurance is generally a minimum of 6 points.

The fact OP not only didn't have insurance but was also driving unsupervised will probably count against them too.

You're not going to be driving for a while.
Don't bother doing your test. Cancel it and let someone more deserving take your place.

Stay off the roads. You do not deserve to drive on them.

Tbh not much point in going to the driving test because you'll just get banned lol. Save your money, get a refund if possible and buy a bike.

No Tom, it’s simple. They’ll just write a “formal complaint” to The Police, (not the band), explain that they didn’t know they needed to be insured or supervised but that they are a law abiding citizen. Job done.

I think the problem with your advice, the real nuts and bolts problem, is that the OP can’t claim to be a “law abiding citizen” when they admit to breaking the law in their own post.

Yeah, I think that’s it.

The bar for bad advice in Cars & Motoring is very low, and I can assure you that yours is amongst the worst I’ve ever read.

OP: The police pulled me for driving uninsured, without supervision in a car with no tax or MOT.
You: Write a complaint.

*slow clap*

It's worth saying that driving alone on a provisional is called driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence, carries 3-6 points and upto £1000 fine if you decide to contest it in court and lose (which you will).
Driving without tax is a maximum fine of £1000 in court, no points.
Driving without insurance is £300 fine in court and 6-8 penalty points.

So even if you don't decide to go to court you're still looking at a minimum of 9 points and a maximum of 14, along with the fees from the fixed penalty notices.

You will be losing your licence, as you cannot even contest that you need to drive for work, as you are not a full licence holder currently.
