Been asked again to find out some info. So if someone was banned for driving for drink driving 5 years ago, the ban was up 4 years ago but they didnt want their license back then. How would they go about getting a new one now?

If their licence was revoked, then they would have to pass a new driving test, otherwise id ring DVLA.

Same thing happened to a mate recently. He had to take a blood test too to prove he hadnt been under the influence of drink and drugs recently. easy enough for alcohol as it is out of your body within 24 hours. Not so good if you take illegal drugs though ;)

How long do you think drugs stay in your system from a basic urine sample?

A couple of days usually depending on the substance. A hair sample is a different matter but I can guarantee they would not do that, it would be just a basic sample.

cannabis is around a month and its a blood test, not urine sample. Can be up to 90 days apparently but my mate gave up for a month and passed (very heavy user)

Ah right, blood test is a bit more solid then. A urine sample is straight in and out within a few days.

I used to dabble in my younger days, had some coke on a Saturday night and had a drug test on Tuesday at work (I did not even know they did drug tests, eeek!). Anyway it came back clear from a urine sample. :)

However I don't smoke and never have done but I do believe weed stays in your system for a bit longer than powdered drugs.
