Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
how can i help please
Have you had the speed awareness course?
Can you argue exceptional hardship?
What would happen if you lost your licence?
Why can't you use taxis?
You do have the option of asking the bench not to disqualify you on the basis that you will suffer exceptional hardship.
Exceptional hardship is a high test though and you do have the burden of proof. It means more than mere inconvenience. We would all suffer inconvenience if we couldn't drive but that isn't the same thing as exceptional hardship.
The place to start is to get confirmation from your employers than you would lose your job without a licence.
If they won't go that far then you need to prove why it is impossible to do your job by public transport. That might mean gathering bus and train timetables and a log of your monthly movements so show why it cannot be done. If it can be done but it is disproportionately expensive then you need to cost the journeys and establish why it would cost more than you earn which is simple enough by producing your income records.
Can I clarify anything for you?
