Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What was your reading? Do you have any previous?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My reading was 57 and no this is the first thing I have done and am really scared
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
You will get a fine and a ban for 12-18 months which can be reduced by 25% if you take the drink drive course. But you will be banned, there is no doubt. But no risk of prison.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
