Home > Exceptional Hardship
Are you pleading guilty, or worried about being convicted of a motoring offence that carries penalty points?
This is a potentially devastating situation. If you already have 9 points on your licence then the Court must impose a minimum mandatory period of six months disqualification, unless it can be satisfied on the balance of probabilities that exceptional hardship would be caused. If you or those around you would be affected particularly detrimentally, then the expert team at Just Motor Law can help to save your driving licence.
Unlike, the Special Reasons argument, an Exceptional Hardship argument does not apply to the circumstances of the offence but on your overall circumstances and the impact the conviction and potential disqualification could have on you and those around you. This argument takes into account the fact that the potential punishment does not fit the crime. The Court can consider the hardship that will apply to both you and others (such as employees if you were to lose your business, your family or relatives you help care for etc).
