Are You at Risk of Losing Your Licence and/or Your Job?
A specialist service is provided for Private and Public Hire Drivers. We know how important it is to safeguard and protect your livelihoods. It is all too often that decisions of the court can render drivers homeless in extreme cases when they are unable to pay mortgage payments following a suspension and/or disqualification from driving. There is no definitive guide as to what would constitute “exceptional hardship” and it is the individual circumstances of the driver that will determine the outcome of the case.
Exceptional Hardship & Special Reasons Argument
There will be instances where you will not be able to avoid being automatically disqualified for a period of up to six months under what are known as the Totting Up Provisions. However, in such cases it is sometimes possible to argue that the disqualification would cause the driver exceptional hardship.
The types of circumstances that would be considered include the personal circumstances of the driver as well as the impact that the disqualification would have on the drivers employment, their family and other people who may be dependent on them.
We will deal with all court hearings that are conducted at the Magistrates Court as well as those held before the Local Licensing Committees and offer a professional, efficient and effective legal service. Your case will ALWAYS be dealt with by a qualified Solicitor or Barrister.
