Driving Ban - 2 weeks

Hi, I am new to this, so please be patient!!  I am trying to find out what the consequences of a qualified driving instructor receiving a two week driving ban.  Does anyone know the answer, or where i would find it out?
Thanks

AFAIK there are no guidelines - any action is at the discretion of the Registrar. He doesn't really have any options such as fines or suspensions, the only actions open to him are removal from the register or a stern warning. My guess would be the former.

I take it this is not a hypothetical question?

Much would depend upon the reason for the ban.

Re: Driving Ban - 2 weeks

I would say that the Registrar will look at it under the Fit and Proper person criteria
DVSA must be informed if you have;
•had any motoring or non-motoring cautions or convictions
•been disqualified from driving
•any court proceedings pending against you
•any penalty points on your licence

The outcome is as suggested by MGM above.

Additionally for the period of the disqualification you cannot act as a supervisor of a learner driver, but I presume you knew that.

Is it not a condition of the ADI licence that you must have held a full licence continuously for at least 3 years? If this is the case, a ban, however short, means that the 3 year qualification clock starts again.

No, three years since passing first test, there is no reset.

If the minimum period with a one year ban would be four years, how long would it be before an instructor could resume work if the driving ban was for only two weeks?
