If you have recently received points on your driving licence which will mean you reach a total of 12 or more points on your licence then you are in danger of losing your licence.
A ban for 12 points totting up is usually 6 months, but in some cases can be much less.
You may be able to avoid losing your licence if the court accepts a submission of excessive hardship.
If you are represented at court a barrister will be able to try and persuade the court to allow you keep your licence and if that is not possible then they can try and keep the length of your ban as low as possible.
If your licence is important to you and you rely on it for work or family then you should go to see a specialist motoring solicitor as soon as possible.
If you have recently passed your driving test and have managed to accumulate 6 or more points within the first two years, then you are also likely to lose your driving licence.
