Obtain A Licence By False Declaration
A licence that is obtained by false declaration or misrepresentation is void. According to the Road Transport (Driver Licensing) Act 1998 Section 22 , it is prohibited to obtain or attempt to obtain a license or apply for renewal by false declarations or misrepresentation.
A void licence is considered to have no effect right from the start. Hence, a person is deemed to never have a valid driver’s license and his ignorance of it being void will not be excused by the law. Possible misrepresentations may occur in providing information to the authorities during the application for licence like falsely declaring the age, address or full name.
If you have been charged with a traffic offence or are under Police investigation, it is important that you seek legal advice.
