The majority of motoring offences carry penalty points. These can range from between three and ten in number.
Any offence which carries mandatory endorsement with points also carries the possibility of discretionary disqualification.
An accumulation of penalty points can result in a disqualification under the "totting up" provisions.
Penalty points can be avoided in certain situations if there are "special reasons" for not endorsing.
Offences for which "special reasons" can be found include speeding, no insurance, traffic light offences, defective vehicle and many more.
Penalty points physically stay on the driving licence for four years and count towards "totting up" for three years.
If you receive 12 penalty points in any three year period you will face a disqualification for a minimum period of 6 months unless you can show "Exceptional Hardship".
We, at A1 Road Traffic Lawyers will assist you with this argument.
New drivers face a different problem. If you attract 6 points upon your licence within the first two years of having passed your driving test you will revert back to a provisional licence holder and will need to take a re test!! This can be, say, for one offence of having no insurance!
At A1 Road Traffic Lawyers we could prevent that scenario.
