I'm after a bit of advice about my DP's drivers licence. It's a long and confusing story - sorry.
In 1998, he was caught by a speed camera, but as he had just moved and didn't change his address with the RTA, he wasn't aware of his fine, so obviously, he didn't pay it.
About a year later, his ex kicked him out and he was living in his car. He was pulled over for a random breath test, and the police told him his licence had been cancelled because of an unpaid fine. Anyway, he kept driving because he was finding somewhere to live, and he was pulled over 2 more times over the next few days.
He represented himself in court in January 2000 (Legal Aid didn't turn up like they were supposed to, and we couldn't have it adjourned), and they disqualified his licence for 3 years for each offence (VERY harsh in my opinion).
He was supposed to be able to get his licence back in May this year, but after contacting the RTA, they told him he can't get it back until 2011. They had added 5 years on top of his original 6 years for being a habitual offender, and he wasn't even noified about it!
Anyway, getting to my question...
Is it possible to appeal the court's decision after so long, and how would we go about it?
