12 Points totting up

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.

Drink Driving Offence

You can re apply for your driving license only once your driving ban has ended. If you apply any sooner you might have to wait even longer before you can drive again

If this it is your first conviction most insurers will ask if you have any convictions in the last 5 years. But the convictin will stay on your record with the DVLA for over 10 years

Yes. Only a uniformed constable can stop you, they must have goon reason to suspect you have been driving, attempting to drive, or in charge of a vehicle with alcohol in your body or you've committed a motoring offence.

Careless Driving

Careless diriving is when your standard of driving is considered to be below what is expected of a reasonable and prudent driver. You do not have to be driving a motor vehicle to be charged with this offence, you can be driving any mechanically propelled motor vehicle. The driving offence does not have to take place on a public road either, the offence can be committed on any place which the public have access.

It is possible depending on how serious your offence is. You can lose between 3 - 9 points on your license and recieve up to a �2,500 fine. It is always best be represented in court to help avoid losing your license.

It is not compulsory to have a solicitor, but highly advisable to seek some kind of legal advice. If you have a defence a solicitor can help fight your corner.
