Our expert solicitors know your questions. We have the answers. We can help you.


How can we help you?

Avoiding a revocation from driving as a new driver can be challenging and we advise you to obtain specialist legal advice, we may be able to help in one of the following ways:
1. We can help you challenge the offence. We will assess the likely strengths of the evidence against you. The police will need to prove the offence you are accused of. If the police are unable to prove the allegation, we may be able to take the matter to court and plead Not Guilty. If you are found Not Guilty of the offence you will not receive any points on your licence.
2. Argue Special Reasons. In some circumstances we may be able to argue that you have a case of special reasons not to have your licence endorsed with penalty points (for example if you did not realise that your vehicle was not insured).
3. Request a court hearing. In some cases we can take your matter to court when we may be able to either ask the court to consider imposing fewer penalty points so you do not reach the 6 penalty point mark or a short disqualification may be easier for you to manage than the driving test re sitting under a revocation from driving which can take many months to wait for a driving test availability date.
