Where In Britain Has The Most Disqualified Drivers | Hippo Leasing

Drivers committing serious motoring offences, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs; not stopping at the scene of an accident or driving dangerously, are likely to receive a driving ban from the DVLA.

Any driver obtaining more than 12 points from less serious offences such as speeding within a 3-year period will also face disqualification. The number is even lower for new drivers, who are automatically disqualified if they receive 6 or more points in the first 2 years.

To find out where drivers are most likely to disqualified in Britain, Hippo Leasing submitted a Freedom of Information request to the DVLA.

At the end of January, 20,583 drivers had 12 or more penalty points on their licences and as a result were banned from the roads altogether.

Taking into account population size, Greater Manchester has the highest number of disqualified drivers (955 people),followed by West Yorkshire in second place, Denbighshire in third, Cardiff in fourth and Northumberland in fifth.

At the other end of the table, drivers in the Scottish county of East Renfrewshire are the least likely to be disqualified from driving, closely followed by Eilean Siar, Orkney Islands, South Ayrshire and Highland.
