Issues covered: Driving Ban in Ireland - Effect in NI

The appellant, in this case, had received a driving ban from the Republic of Ireland as a result of a drink driving offence. He chose to ignore the ban and continued to drive in Northern Ireland despite having been informed that disqualification applied to his UK licence also.

The Court ruled against the appellant and stated: "Let this case be a warning: no longer can UK motorists travel to Ireland and commit motoring offences with virtual impunity – if they are disqualified in Ireland then their UK licence will be taken off them also."

This is not an employment case but could have an impact on someone's employment in Northern Ireland.
