Professional Driver Retains Licence Despite Being a Totter

This driver was represented by Helen Newbold in the Magistrates’ court where he was facing a disqualification of his licence after pleading guilty to a speeding offence.  With 9 points on his licence at the time of the offence this driver faced automatic disqualification under the totting rules for accumulating a total of 12 points. Helen Newbold took the court through the elements of exceptional hardship setting out how the disqualification of the licence would affect people other than the client. The court accepted the exceptional hardship argument and, despite now having 12 points on his licence, this driver was able to continue to drive
