Does it matter how long a person has been disqualified for previously?

Bluntly – yes.  

The longer the period of the original disqualification, the harder it is to get leave. This is due to the fact that the court views a longer period of disqualification as more “serious”. Equally, granting leave for someone disqualified for a long period of time is seen as undermining the “deterrence” factor of the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986.
