motorbike solicitor has produced a series of Offence Guides geared at helping motorcycle riders and their pillion passengers understand common road traffic offences and the issues facing them should they be stopped by the police.
This page contains our guide to the offence of driving whilst disqualified.
Driving a motorbike (or any motor vehicle) if you have been disqualified from driving is an offence, as is obtaining a licence if you are disqualified and allowing someone to drive a motorbike (or motor vehicle) that you know is disqualified.
The police have the right to arrest anyone found driving a motorbike whom they believe to be disqualified.
To prosecute it must be shown that you were riding the motorbike and disqualified from driving at the time. No NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution) is required for driving whilst disqualified. It is not necessary for you to be aware that you have been disqualified, and many people are disqualified in their absence these days.
