Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear you dont have any other driving convictions at all?
The sentencing bracket is 60-89. You can expect to get a fine and a disqualification between 17 – 22 months.
You can reduce the disqualification by 25% if you complete a drink drive course.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No, you wont need character reference or a Solicitor as it wont make any difference.
If you plead guilty you can expect 1/3rd off any fine and a reduction in the disqualification period.
The fact you had an accident is an aggravating feature, but you have not been charged with anything else.
It is a recordable offence so you will need to declare it, until it becomes spent, unless its an exempted post.
So you need to check first.
Does that clarify?
If they were to consider two identical candidates and one had a conviction - it may go against you.
All the best and thanks
