I'm sorry. I lost my connection. You can get a refund for the phone call.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If the facts are as you say then he will get six points I'm afraid.

If he gets six points then he will be revoked as he is within the new driver's scheme. I had been hoping it was just a provisional but not so.

There is no exceptional hardship test.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It is not like a ban where he could argue exceptional hardship.

the only good thing is that if he takes his test and passes immediately then he will be back on the road.

Can I clarify anything for you?
