Speeding – totting up and exceptional hardship

If you receive 12 or more penalty points within a three year period, you should be disqualified under the Totting Up system. However you can avoid disqualification if you prove you would suffer “exceptional hardship”. Our specialist solicitors will prepare you properly for this court hearing and provide expert representation. If your driving licence is important to you, get the best advice and representation BEFORE you go to court.

Speeding – outright disqualification

If you have been driving well above the speed limit, the court can consider an outright disqualification. Our specialist solicitors can help you avoid this.
