You must have good reasons for asking the court to reduce your disqualification. For example, if you think the court made a mistake or there were reasons why you committed the original offence which the court did not take into account when imposing sentence.
You can also ask the court to reduce the disqualification for personal reasons, some of which are listed below:
These are only a few of the reasons a court may consider, the list is by no means exhaustive. Other reasons may include an opportunity for you to carry out charity work or an elderly or sick relative would greatly benefit if you were able to drive again.
Any additional supporting evidence could strengthen your application such as medical reports from your GP or a CDT Blood test proving that you are addressing alcohol issues you may have had previously, reports from counsellors and Character References.
We will contact the court that imposed the disqualification and the Crown Prosecution Service on your behalf to arrange a hearing when you will be required to attend. We will arrange for you to be represented by one of our specialist motoring barristers who will meet you at the court for a conference in private before the hearing commences.
In advance of the hearing, we will prepare your case and provide advice regarding supporting evidence and references. During the hearing your barrister will usually be able to deal with all matters on your behalf, to ensure the best possible outcome.
The Court will consider your application, taking into account various factors such as:
The court can refuse your request to have your disqualification reduced, however you can re-apply after 3 months. There is no limit to the applications you can make until your licence is returned.
