    As long as it is a private road and not used by members of the public. (UK). 

    Even driving on private property open to the public , a car park for example, requires insurance and therefore a licence,

    as long as you have got the land owners permission and you arent a danger to yourself or anybody else on the property then yes - its legal in the U.K

    Yes. A license or permit is only required on public-access roadways (paved or dirt). If it is a shared private road, there could be some liability issues.

    Drivers licenses and permits only apply to public property or the expected entry to it. Remaining on the dirt road with the owners permission and not approaching the public access is legal as you describe it.
