Ok thanks.

You’ll have to try and plead “exceptional hardship”. Exceptional hardship is a legal argument that can be submitted to the court to avoid a disqualification.

The word ‘exceptional’ is vital to any case, as just simply pleading ‘hardship’ would not be enough. Most people will suffer some kind of hardship when losing their driving licence although this is the aim of the legislation. What is not the aim of the legislation is when‘exceptional hardship’ would be caused. To be exceptional, the hardship to be suffered must be something out of the ordinary.

So if you can state what you have said above and show how it can affect your wife and baby, and the shelter of your property and getting food for them etc you may get a reduction in the ban.

Does this answer your question?
