Our specialists have extensive experience dealing with motoring offences and understand the impact losing your driving licence can have on your personal and work life.
As a full licence holder, if you accrue 12 or more penalty points in any three year period you would be disqualified under the totting provisions. The disqualification would be for a minimum period of six months. In some circumstances it is possible to persuade the court that you, or a third party, would suffer exceptional hardship as a result. If this is achieved the court can exercise its discretion to impose a shorter disqualification, or no disqualification at all. Our experts are able to advise you whether this argument is available to you, and if it is, to present the argument to the court on your behalf.
A number of offences carry an outright disqualification. These include drink driving, dangerous driving and failing to provide a sample. In all cases our team will carefully analyse the evidence, and advise you on your plea.
Early Return Of Driving Licence
If you have been disqualified from driving it may be that you are able to apply for your driving licence to be returned early. We will be able to advise you whether this applies to you, and if so, how to make the necessary application.
For two years from the date a driver passes their test, they are subject to the probationary driver provisions. This means that, in addition to the normal powers of a court, there are additional powers for the DVLA to revoke a driving licence. See our New Drivers page for more information.
