The courts accept that there are special reasons that need to be taken into account when dealing with driving offences. So if you’ve committed a driving offence that was outside of your control, or penalty points totting up on your driving licence will result in exceptional hardship, we can help you defend your case to achieve a successful outcome.
Our solicitors can offer advice and defend you for the following careless driving charges:
If your driving conviction results in a disqualification and you believe the reasons for that conviction are special to that individual case, you may be able to reduce or avoid the ban.
Typical reasons for special reasons are:
If you receive 12 points on your licence within 3 years, you face a minimum driving ban of 6 months. If you can demonstrate to the courts that the loss of your licence will have a significant impact on your livelihood and wellbeing, you could persuade the court to shorten the ban or impose a different penalty.
There’s no standard definition of exceptional hardship that the courts follow. Each case is judged on its own merits, and it’s up to you to build the case. So our motoring solicitors will work closely with you to build a thorough and strong case that gives you the best chance of a successful outcome.
