OK - well its a mixture of news.
He should go to Court and plead guilty. This is because he will get 12 points.
The court will then need to consider whether he should be disqualified under the totting up procedure, as he has 12 points.
The court has to ban him unless he can show exceptional hardship as a result of the ban.
Losing your job is not enough as there is case law in Wilkinsons practice book on traffic offences which says that even a taxi driver who had points did not show exceptional hardship.
He needs to show it would not only be hardship for him but others who rely on him as well.
He should instruct a Solicitor to attend and present this argument. If accepted, the court can allow him to continue driving but he would be driving with 12 points.
This means ANY other driving offence which attracts points before the old ones come off, mean he will be banned. He wont get another chance.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
