12 Points Totting Up

Motoring Offences Solicitors Newcastle and Sunderland

Totting up offences occur when you reach 12 points on your licence. You may have received the points for speeding, driving through a red traffic light, drink driving or driving without due care and attention. Should you reach 12 points in a 3 year period, the court guidelines are that you should be automatically disqualified from driving for at least 6 months. Some courts do disqualify for 3 months instead but the likelihood is that, if you reach 12 points and you cannot convince the court that you should be allowed to retain your licence, then you are likely to lose your licence for a 6 month period.

“It was very assuring to see you at court and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I was impressed with your delivery of the details and this proved to be successful. I have been very anxious since the date of the offence and worried about the effect that this would have on everyone. Not least of which is the everyday school run to deliver and collect our 5yr old granddaughter from school".

"You have given me confidence in using your services in the future - NOT for motoring problems as I will be extra vigilant but for any other problems. I can only thank you for your help. I will be forever grateful".
