If you’ve been summoned to court for speeding, drink driving or any other motoring offence and are at risk of losing your driving licence, our Road Traffic Barristers may be able to improve your chances of avoiding a driving ban.
Avoid A Ban offers advice and guidance to drivers throughout the legal process. We’ll go through the details of your driving offence with you, helping you build the best possible arguments, according to your specific circumstances, then present your case to the Court, with the goal of persuading it that you should keep your licence.
A large national firm might simply give your case to a local Barrister, so going directly to the Barrister can streamline the process, potentially saving you money as well as allowing the lawyer who actually represents you in court an opportunity to advise you from the outset.
Many drivers choose to represent themselves if they’re caught speeding but there’s a risk they'll end up with a heavier penalty and greater court costs if their case is badly argued or ill-thought out. That’s why it often makes sense to seek the advice of a lawyer with experience in road traffic law before deciding what to do. Call Avoid A Ban and you’ll be advised by a Barrister with experience of helping drivers in Dorset, Wiltshire or Hampshire keep their licences, for example by arguing exceptional hardship.
Avoid A Ban could increase your chances of keeping your licence after you’ve been charged with speeding or are at risk of a totting up ban and keeping any penalty points and court costs to a minimum.

If you can show that a driving disqualification will cause you - or anyone who depends on your ability to drive - exceptional hardship you may be able to avoid a ban and keep on driving. Our Barristers may be able to help you put together an exceptional hardship argument and present it to the Court on your behalf.

Get 12 or more penalty points on your licence and you can expect a “totting ban”, disqualifying you from driving for up to 6 months. This means you’ll have to attend a court hearing, at which the magistrates will decide whether or not to disqualify you and, if so, for how long.
One way to avoid disqualification is to persuade the magistrates a driving ban would cause you or someone who depends on your ability to drive “exceptional hardship”. Obtaining good legal representation can help you explore your options for avoiding or reducing the length of any ban.
