Saving Your Licence

The greatest concern arising where there is a potential for points and disqualification. With that in mind there are two key defence arguments.

Special Reasons

Even where you might have to plead Guilty to an offence it is not always the case that the Court must impose a disqualification, points or fine. The Court has discretion to avoid such penalties even in Drink Driving cases where a disqualification is mandatory.

Exceptional Hardship

"Totting-up" arises where a driver accumulates 12 or more points in a 3 year period. As such the driver is subject to a minimum 6 month disqualification. However, where it can be established that "exceptional hardship" would follow such a disqualification a Court may be persuaded not to impose the disqualification or to shorten the period of the disqualification to less than 6 months.

In both cases preparation of the arguments must be carefully evaluated and considered and it may be a case that documentary or expert evidence is necessary. In Court experienced advocacy will usually be required to succeed. In each of these special instances the Road Traffic Team at Petherbridge Bassra will be able to advise you as to the merits of mounting and presenting such an argument.
