Totting-Up Disqualification

Once you reach 12 points then the court will impose a mandatory driving disqualification for a minimum of 6 months. This is known as a ‘totting-up’ disqualification. It is therefore possible to face a 6 month ban with only one previous conviction.

If you accumulate 12 points in a period of less than 3 years then the only way of avoiding a driving disqualification is to put forward mitigation to the court and to convince the Magistrates not to disqualify you from driving. The main argument that can be used to try and avoid a ‘totting-up’ ban is known as ‘exceptional hardship’. It is very important that proper evidence of ‘exceptional hardship’ is presented to the court.


Defending Cases With Exceptional Hardship

The threshold for exceptional hardship is very high, that is why It is highly advisable to have a solicitor represent you.

Exceptional hardship essentially means if you were to receive a ban, this would cause great hardship to yourself and a third party such as family members, employees, financial hardship etc.
