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.
