We recently represented a client who had been prosecuted for no insurance. The offence carries a range of penalty points. Our client wanted to avoid the points because if they were imposed would have been disqualified under the toting up provisions for a minimum of 6 months.
We were able to argue that there were SPECIAL REASONS for not imposing the points.
The reason always has to relate to the reason why the offence took place, NOT the effect the points would have on the drivers domestic, employment or financial circumstances.
Here the client avoided imposition of the points and thereby avoided a ‘trotting up’ disqualification.
Such cases normally require 2 court hearings, with the court hearing evidence from the client and witnesses. Our fees for representing at such hearings start at £200, depending on the complexity and length of the court case.
