What will happen will depend on your circumstances.
Were you driving a HGV for either of these offences? If you were, it could make it much harder to get your HGV back.
If the last offence was failing to supply this could make it harder.
Presumably you got a 3 year ban. I would expect you to be asked to appear at a conduct hearing before your Traffic Commissioner to explain what happened. If you seem suitably contrite (they like to hear you have done a Drink Drive Rehabilitation Course)

Neither of the offences were in a Hgv, both in a car, and yes the second time I got 40 months, reduced to 30 with the drink drive course, which I have completed. I also provided samples both times. So no refusal to give.

The likelihood is that the Traffic Commissioner will tell you this is not what they expect from a professional driver and your HGV licence will be withheld for a further 2-3 months after the ban is up, but then it will be reinstated.
