  2. Where  a driving  licence is  required to be endorsed and the driving licence  is not in the possession of the Court or authority by which the endorsement is to be made, then--

Provided that if the endorsement is only in respect of an offence  contravening the  speed limits referred to in , such person shall be  entitled to  receive a  new driving  licence free  from such endorsements on  the expiration  of  one  year  of  the  date  of  the endorsement:

Provided further that in reckoning the said period of three years and one  year, respectively,  any period  during which the said person was disqualified  for holding  or obtaining a driving licence shall be excluded.
