What is the offence?
The court has the power to disqualify a person from driving for many different offences. Sometimes the disqualification is at the discretion of the court but it can be mandatory. For example you may be disqualified from driving for 12 months as a result of drink driving. You may have been disqualified and ordered to do a retest before you can get your licence back. You may be disqualified as a result of reaching 12 points on your licence. This is known as a totting-up disqualification.
Whatever the circumstances, if you drive whilst subject to a disqualification you will commit the offence. This is the case even if the length of the disqualification has expired but the retest has not been taken.
What is the penalty?
The court can impose anything from a financial penalty to a 26-week prison sentence. You will also receive either 6 points on your licence or a disqualification of up to 18 months beyond the expiry of the current disqualification.
How can I save my licence?
You may have a defence. If you weren’t at court for the disqualification and didn’t realise that you were disqualified, you do not have a defence but we may be able to use a special reasons argument to persuade the court not to disqualify further.
Please contact us if you have been asked to attend an interview at the police station or have received a date for court.
Do I have a Defence?
Perhaps you dispute that you were disqualified, or you weren’t driving the car. We can discuss any possible defences with you.
