Totting Up Ban
Totting Up Ban
You will be in danger of incurring a totting up ban if you accrue 12 penalty points on your licence within any 3-year period. Wherever you are in England & Wales, if you are worried about a possible driving ban, our specialist totting up ban solicitors will provide you with essential legal assistance so that you can either avoid or minimise any disqualification.
Most driving offences (such as speeding, vehicle faults or minor traffic offences) bring about a fixed penalty notice of 3 penalty points and a £100 fine. As with any driving licence endorsement, these points will remain on your driver’s licence for at least 4 years.
Naturally, though, the more serious the offence, the more points will be endorsed on your licence. So, a conviction for driving without insurance can incur up to 6 points, a careless driving conviction can incur up to 9 points, and a conviction for dangerous driving or drink driving can incur up to 11 penalty points.
A totting up ban will often be 6 months, but could be longer if it is not your first ban. If, though, you are within the first 2 years of passing your driving test, you only need build up 6 penalty points to have your licence revoked.
If you are in danger of receiving a driving disqualification from totting up 12 penalty points, you may need to argue a case of exceptional hardship in order to overturn or reduce your ban.
