Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You have been caught speeding more than once? Why is it you are facing a ban, you have 6 points currently?
I think it's because I was going 57 in a 40mph zone. My letter says they are 'considering whether to disqualify you from driving because of the seriousness of the offence(s) or the number of penalty points on you driving record.' It could also be because I didn't send my licence in.
Ok - did you plead guilty to the offence?
yes I have (I think I was also found guilty in my absence)
Its just one offence, is that correct?
The sentencing guidelines state that 56-65mph in a 40mph zone it should be 4-6 points or disqualify for 7-28 days.
Given you have pleaded guilty and that it is the lower of the bracket I think that should will get 4 points.
It is only where you are at the higher end of that bracket, ie 60mph+ you are likely to be disqualified.
Therefore you are likely to get 4 points and a big fine
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes potentially but it needs to be so serious to deserve a ban. They wont ban you just because of the sake of it or because you ask for it
It has to warrant a ban
Does that help?
