Penalty Points and Disqualification

Our Expert advice and representation

Most driving offences will result in the risk of penalty points being endorsed on your licence. This may inevitably have the effect of costing you money due to higher insurance premiums, but it can also have the accumulative impact on your licence. Totting up of penatly points over time has resulted in the disqualification of many drivers when 12 points or more accrue on their licence within a three year period (sometimes referred to as “totting up”).

Even if individual offences are considered minor, you will be disqualified from driving unless you provide a relevant defence against the ban.

Avoiding Disqualification

What can be done in certain circumstances

  • The removal of a disqualification and return of your licence to you
  • Appeals to the Crown Court regarding a verdict
  • Assisting you in cases of medical revocation of a licence
