Exceptional Hardship Saves Driving Licence Dumfries

Kept Licence
Dumfries Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

This case called in Dumfries Justice of the Peace Court on 27 November 2019. Having entered a plea of guilty to a charge of speeding, the spectre of a totting-up ban loomed due to the accumulation of penalty points over a three year period. An exceptional hardship case was presented to the court which involved a focus on our client’s very particular set of skills and the potential hardship which would be endured by a co-worker and the company itself, together with the impact on his immediate family. After hearing evidence on these various matters the court upheld our exceptional hardship submission, much to the relief of our client.
