Exceptional Hardship

If you accumulate 12 or more penalty points you could face losing your licence for up to 2 years. In some circumstances it could be argued that the hardship likely to be caused as a result of the disqualification would be so exceptional that a court could consider a lesser period of disqualification, or not at all.

The courts see a large volume of these submissions so it is important that yours stands out.  Good quality preparation is vital for success.  Getting the right legal advice and representation will help you to prepare your argument in the most persuasive way.

It is important to understand that this type of submission must be clearly made and presented to the court.  Turning up to court without detailed preparation is not advised.  Our specialist motoring lawyers have a very high success rate with these arguments through detailed advice and robust, skilled representation.
