Motoring Offences: Exceptional Hardship

Laws involving driving offences are becoming increasingly complex. At Paul Robinson Solicitors we specialise in applications for Exceptional Hardship and understand that the prospect of losing your licence and any consequences can have a huge impact upon your employment, home and family. By law if you accumulate 12 penalty points within a three year period you will be summonsed to appear before the Magistrates Court, whereby you can be disqualified for a minimum period of 6 months. This is more commonly known as a ‘totting’ up procedure.

For those facing such disqualification, many are not aware that a successful Exceptional Hardship application can result in you keeping your licence. The application centres around the reason not to disqualify a motorist. We are dedicated to ensuring that your application is thoroughly prepared and presented, supported by any accompanying evidence. Exceptional Hardship is just that, there is no clear guidance as to what distinguishes exceptional hardship, that is why it is so important that and any application is properly and thoroughly prepared.

We understand the importance of keeping your driving licence and here at Paul Robinson Solicitors we offer reliable and accurate advice on the prospects of your case. We are able to provide comprehensive advice on totting up procedures and can assist with making representations to the Crown Prosecution Service in relation to an application of Exceptional Hardship.
