Early Restoration Of Licence Saves Job

Licence Restored
Fort William Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client had been disqualified from driving for a period of 5 years. At the halfway point his employment was under threat. He would ordinarily have had to serve out the remaining two and a half years. He had a family to support and was told by his employer that unless he could get his driving licence restored he would be out of a job. Following detailed written arguments and oral representations made to the Court, the period of disqualification was ended that day, our client was permitted to return to driving and his job was saved.
