Driving has now become an integral part of our lives.

However, our lives would be very different if we were disqualified from driving and no longer allowed to drive. If you rely upon driving for any of these reasons, you should seek expert legal advice about your driving prosecution before attending Coventry Magistrates’ or Crown Court.
For most people disqualification from driving means they are no longer able to continue with their job which could result in losing their income and this will have devastating repercussions upon all aspects of life. In most instances this results in financial difficulties and problems in meeting household commitments such as mortgage repayments.
Exceptional Hardship Solicitors Coventry
A driver could potentially avoid a driving ban if the Court accepts a submission of Exceptional Hardship. There is no formal definition of what amounts to Exceptional Hardship, however it is accepted that hardship must be greater than what would be reasonably foreseeable after receiving a driving ban.
The Court will also consider the effects of a driving ban on other people and dependants connected to the motorist. These third parties are effectively innocent of any offence and would in essence be punished if the motorist were to be disqualified for Totting Up. This can be a very important factor that could mean exceptional hardship would be suffered.
Loss of employment alone will not automatically amount to exceptional hardship, as it is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of a driving ban. However, the implications that arise from loss of employment such as the prospect of bankruptcy or defaulting on your mortgage and the effect on others could potentially amount to exceptional hardship.
For a driving offence committed in Coventry an exceptional hardship argument would need to be made at Coventry Magistrates’ Court, which can be a daunting and frightening experience for those who are unfamiliar with the Criminal Justice System.
When making an exceptional hardship application the defendant may be required to take the oath and give evidence of their circumstances before the Magistrates’ or District Judge. The evidence given is likely to be cross-examined by the Prosecutor, Magistrates or District Judge.
In circumstances where the motorist is represented by a specialist motoring law firm, an advocate will present the evidence for the application in their submissions on behalf of the defendant. The defendant would then simply be asked on oath to confirm the truth of those submissions. At Kang & Co Solicitors, our specialist Totting Up Solicitors have been making successful exceptional hardship arguments for many years, and are skilled at identifying key evidence to win your exceptional hardship application. We have a robust approach to preparing our arguments and will not rest until a case is at its strongest.
