  • Exceptional Hardship – when you risk losing your licence due to having too many penalty points
  • Special reasons – Hearings whereby you may be guilty of drink driving but a “special reason” exists which means the court should not impose the mandatory disqualification.

If you face any of these types of investigation or proceedings it is essential you contact Chris Stevenson Solicitors as possible, our experience shows early expert advice can be crucial in determining the outcome and in some cases can avoid the need to attend court.
