    Peter, a businessman, had his driving licence taken

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    Peter, a businessman, had his driving licence taken away because of drink-driving. He was angry at himself for committing such stupidity, and hired a personal driver to keep up with his business affairs.

    I think 'forfeit' can be used in 'Peter, a businessman, had forfeited his driving licence.'
    I am not a teacher.
