The last thing you want is to be disqualified from driving, yet that happens in cases more often than not. The law suggests that when any driver reaches 12 penalty points within a three year period, the Court puts an immediate ban of 6 months or more into place. The only preventative measure? Exceptional Hardship.
CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY
The only way to prevent a driving ban is to ensure you're found to have an exceptional hardship. The hardship has to be beyond that normally suffered by an individual who is deprived of his license, and the best way to establish that hardship is to show the severity of the implications to the court carefully. We have the experience necessary to show those implications, and we're ready to help you in court.
WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN?
There is no clear definition of Exceptional Hardship, and that's one of the reasons we're able to help so many defendants in drink driving cases. The typical approach is for the Court to reach its own conclusion, and often what you might think of as Exceptional Hardship (like the loss of a job) isn't what the court considers. Each case can be interpreted differently, so seeking the help of experts is an absolute must.
