EXCEPTIONAL HARDSHIPSTOCKPORT | MANCHESTER | NORTH WEST
You have one opportunity to argue exceptional hardship on a particular basis in any three year period. If you can show the Court that a disqualification for a minimum period of 6 months (under the totting-up procedure) would cause you or someone who relies upon you exceptional hardship then the Court will still impose the penalty points but they may permit you to keep your licence.
Call us for immediate advice by telephone on 0161 477 1121.
What is “Exceptional Hardship”?
The word “exceptional” means just that.
An inconvenience (such as a significantly increased journey time due to the use of public transport) would not qualify.
The court may consider (depending upon your financial circumstances) that you could hire someone to drive for you, in order to avoid exceptional hardship.
However a consequence such as a loss of employment could be viewed as causing exceptional hardship.
