The youngest person to be banned from driving in the UK in the las three years was 11 years old a Freedom of Information request has found. 

In total there were 5,333 under-age (younger than 17) children who were banned from driving in the last 3 years.

Auto Express report:

Five 11-year-olds have been banned since 2009 – three of them for the aggravated taking of a vehicle, which is legal jargon for stealing a car and then driving it dangerously or causing injury or damage to people or property.

A 12-year-old got a lifetime driving ban this year, five years before they were even legally old enough to get behind the wheel. They were convicted of two counts of aggravated taking of a vehicle and one of failing to supply a specimen for alcohol testing. And a 15-year-old got a two-year driving ban after being convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.
