Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear at the time of the offence how many 'live' points would you have had?
In that case they will take the points into account.
For sentencing it is 'live' points at the time of the offence.
So in this case if you had 6 points in August 2013 they would have been live at February 2016.
So yes, they will be taken into account. So if you get 6 points or more for THIS offence you could be disqualified under the totting up procedure as you would have 12 points for sentencing purposes.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
That makes no difference. The Court will say you should have thought about that before speeding,
The only thing you could argue is that the existing points are old and therefore by imposing new points will serve as a reminder
Does that clarify?
Take your chances yes. The only other you can argue is exceptional hardship. But that you would need a Solicitor to do for you. That is where you show that exceptional hardship would be caused to others because you are disqualified.
But that is your only chance and you will need a Solicitor.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
