If you rely upon your driving licence for work or personal circumstances our lawyers can assist by advancing an Exceptional Hardship Application on your behalf to the Magistrates or District Judge sitting at Kidderminster.
Exceptional Hardship Application Procedure
If you are considering making an exceptional hardship application to avoid a driving ban, you should appoint a motoring lawyer to stand a realistic chance of being successful with your exceptional hardship application. Our solicitors and barristers are skilled and experienced in successfully advancing exceptional hardship applications to the Court,.
An exceptional hardship application must be made in Court, which can be a difficult and frightening experience for people who are not familiar with the Courts or Criminal Justice System.
The precise procedure for an exceptional hardship application varies between each Court. In some Courts, a defendant may be required to take an oath and give live oral evidence before the Magistrates’ or District Judge of his / her circumstances. This evidence of the defendant is usually cross-examined by the Prosecutor, Magistrates or Judge to determine exactly how ‘exceptional’ the hardship really is.
At Kang & Co Solicitors, we have a wealth of experience in this area and this is proven within our success rates in assisting drivers in avoiding driving disqualifications. Our motoring lawyers have the appropriate knowledge of the various exceptional hardship arguments that can be put before the
Court forward and can also advise you on the necessary evidence to support and strengthen the Exceptional Hardship Argument.
What amounts to Exceptional Hardship varies depending on personal circumstances. However, the following are some arguments which have been used to persuade the Court of Exceptional Hardship:
- Impact on family members
- Personal/financial implications
- Impact on business
- Inability to care for elderly / disabled individuals
- Loss of employment
- Impact on employee
