What is Exceptional Hardship?

Exceptional hardship is where a court will look at your wider circumstances when considering an appropriate punishment. This means that if a certain punishment were to have a detrimental or negative effect on other people then that punishment may be reduced.

Eceptional hardship only applies where a driver is facing disqualification due to having more than 12 points on the driving licence.

For more detailed information on exceptional hardship please see our main exceptional hardship guide. If you are facing disqualification please contact our lawyers for expert advice on putting forward carefully prepared exceptional harship arguments in court
