Customer: replied 13 days ago.
again you are asking me to pay £44 to call you. i refuse to pay more money as i have a 7 day free trial
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 13 days ago.

Ok. Did you have 12 points at the time of the latest offence?

The call option is automated.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
no it was last march and i had 9 points at that time. but court date has been delayed till end november and i now have only 6 points on my licence
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 13 days ago.

it goes from date of offence. At the time you had 9 points. Therefore this will take you to 12. As such you are liable for disqualification

It’s not date of sentence, but date of offence.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
is it an automatic 6 month disqualification
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 13 days ago.

Yes it is. But you will get a clean licence back with 0 points.

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
thanks
