Although there are many vehicles which can, under certain circumstances, be driven on an ordinary driving licence (including vans, minibuses and motorhomes) if you plan to drive a large goods vehicle (LGV) or passenger-carrying vehicle (PCV) then you will need to obtain the appropriate entitlement. Section 87 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 makes it an offence for you to drive a motor vehicle on a road otherwise than in accordance with a driving licence for that class of vehicle. If you do not have the appropriate licence then you are liable to a penalty of between 3 – 6 points (unless "special reasons" exist) and a maximum fine of £1000. The court also has the discretion to disqualify you should it see fit.
If you have been charged with driving any class of vehicle for which you do not hold a licence contact keep medriving and we will be able to advise you as to how best to proceed including whether there are grounds for contesting the matter or how best to mitigate it.
