How long after one has had their licences revoked can one reapply?

It depends what it was revoked for, and if the circumstances that led to the revocation have been rectified, or are no longer a problem. They have gotten very strict with renewing revokes. Especially if over domestics with an ex- partner. If that's the case some Forces will never re-instate an sgc or fac.

I'd call your FEO, not one of the dip sticks in the office. You're more likely to get an honest (as her or she can be) answer....

Its a question for a lawyer who specialises in firearms law , google may bring one up, as has been mentioned it depends on the offence , also BASC or the NGO  may help if are a member.

Thanks

Never really understood the form that was given to me but I know exactly why it they were revoked. No criminal activity at all, no domestic problems just told the police what I thought of them and putting in a few official complaints!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a member of BASC and have been for a long time, but they weren't interested mainly due to most of them being police.

Of course, like everything in this world its all about money. The licensing department can go to crown court and it won't cost them a penny, if I go to court it costs hundreds of thousands

I was exaggerating actually but thanks for the criticism.

I wouldn’t enter crown court without a couple of barristers and yes I have researched the costs and have first hand experience of the costings of barristers and the legal system.

I have seen far to many people lose a case due to incompetent solicitors but worse than that, many many “crooks” get away with things because of very good (expensive)  barristers!

I find it difficult to believe you have had your certificate revoked due to making official complaints. If when you say "telling the police what you thought of them" you mean acting agressively, maybe they had good reason to revoke your certificate. You comes across to me as someone who might act aggressively in relation to the tone of one of your posts.

So youve checked with BASC whether they will foot the legal bill?

 

I guess you read all the information on the link I sent ?

 

"Our Fees

Thanks for the reply.

Yes. Checked with basc and they were not interested, in fact I tried to put in a complaint but people mysteriously kept leaving basc and they were the ones that were dealing with my complaint. This happened on three separate occasions.

I'm sorry but I didn't read all the information on the link, what I did was google the company and this is a few reviews I found about them.

It was a rip-OFF.

Appalling service.

Didn't find the service great.

Extremely poor service.

 

I definitely agree with this.. The most contact I had with them was regarding discussing money and legal aid rather than actual defence case. 
Very inexperienced solicitor that has left me with a criminal record!

What a great company they must be!

No offence intended to the OP, but these were my exact thoughts, too.

Funny that as I've found BASC enthusiastic to go after licensing departments if they think they are in the wrong.

Well that's fair enough, you can only speak as you find, but I'm not sure what you mean by "go after", To me that seems like a very aggressive attitude to take against a police department.

What were the circumstances that you've found?

Did they use a barrister when they when to crown court for you?

Were you in the right or wrong and what was the outcome of your cases?

I can understand anyone that has been found guilty of, say, drink driving, or anything to do with drink for that matter, or violence etc etc would have their licence taken away for good. They are in the wrong in my opinion.

Someone who has had their licences taken away without any convictions, warnings or anything detrimental to do with guns seems very strange to me.

All I can think of, is my aggressive attitude towards them.

How many of the BASC departments are staffed by Police?  Surely being a serving Police officer you won't have the time and vice versa
