New Driver with 6 Penalty Points in First 2 years Keeps Licence on Appeal to Crown Court.
This driver received 6 penalty points on his licence in his absence following being caught speeding. Under the new driver legislation, any driver who accumulates 6 points within the first two years of driving, the licence is revoked. This driver appealed the decision to the Crown Court and was represented by Millicent Dooher. Prior to the hearing, the driver had been off the road for 25 days. Following representations made by Millicent, the Court imposed a disqualification of 28 days rather than penalty points, to take into account the previous 25-day disqualification, leaving 3 further days of disqualification and the driver’s licence was re-instated.
