What happens when someone who holds no licence is convicted of a motoring offence?
Where a driver who holds no licence is convicted of a driving offence, they have no record against which to record the endorsement. Therefore, in the absence of a licence record against which to assign the offence(s) the DVLA creates a ‘skeleton’ record; a Non-Licence Holder record is set up for the purpose of recording the endorsement.
In 02/2022 the DVLA held 239,560 non-licence holder records.
