Exceptional Hardship Application Granted for Driver who Accrued 37 Penalty Points.
Millicent Dooher, barrister, represented this driver before the Magistrates Court following a number of speeding offences. Ultimately the Magistrates imposed penalty points on the driver’s licence, totalling 37 penalty points. An application for exceptional hardship was put before the Magistrates, with the request for a short ban, rather than the mandatory 6 month ‘totting’ ban.
The Magistrates accepted the exceptional hardship arguments and imposed a 5-week totting disqualification. This means that at the end of the 5-week disqualification, this driver will get a clean licence returned to her.
