Given the variety in types of road traffic offences, it is extremely important that you seek legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
One of the most common matters we deal with is a client facing a disqualification under what are known as ‘totting up’ rules. In short, if you have accumulated 12 points on your licence, the courts are automatically obliged to impose a driving ban of 6 months for the first ‘totting up’ offence. If you are a new driver (if you have only qualified within the last 2 years) and accumulate 6 penalty points on your licence, the law says that the DVLA has to revoke, or take away, your licence. In these circumstances, new drivers are required by law to take their driving test again before being reissued with a driving licence.
Whether your licence is essential for your job, to take your children to school, or even because you live in a rural area with the nearest town miles away, we know that your driving licence is precious to you and we will do our best to prevent you losing it.There are legal tests such as "exceptional hardship" which we regularly use to prevent our clients being disqualified.
