Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Ollie, TrustPilot

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent.

What is Totting Up Ban

A totting-up driving ban occurs when a motorist accumulates 12 or more penalty points upon their driving licence. As an example, a motorist may have 9 active penalty points on their driving licence and then the motorist commits a further offence such as speeding for which the Court may impose a further 3 penalty points. This will result in a total of 12 penalty points. Once a motorist accumulates 12 or more active penalty points, the Court will impose a totting-up ban (driving disqualification). This is sometimes referred to as a being a ‘totter’.

Disqualification Period for a Totting Up Ban

Once a motorist receives a ‘totting up’ driving ban, the Court will impose the statutory period of a penalty points disqualification, which is a minimum period of 6 months driving disqualification.

The minimum period ban will be 12 months if there has been a previous disqualification for a period of 56 days or more imposed within the past 3 years.

Chambers and Partners 2024 Ranked Leading Law Firm

Chambers Top Ranked Law Firm

Our law firm is ranked amongst the top tier of law firms in the United Kingdom with a Band A ranking in the category of Crime (this includes Driving Offences), the highest ranking that can achieved in the Chambers Guide.

Legal 500 Leading Firm

The Legal 500 guide describes Kang & Co Solicitors as being “well adept at tailoring its resources to an individual case and investing heavily for the client. Legal advice is honest and the team always takes into consideration the views of the client.”

Newly Qualified Drivers

Drivers that have held a full driving licence for less than two years are classed as ‘newly qualified drivers’ and in that period can only accumulate a maximum of 6 penalty points, as opposed to 12 penalty points. In circumstances where a newly qualified driver accumulates 6 or more penalty points on their driving licences, the driver will have his/her driving licence revoked and is required to pass another driving test.

How Our Lawyers Can Help

A totting up driving ban can have a significant detrimental impact on employment, family life and social life. Motorists tend to take driving for granted, however, if you are facing a totting-up driving ban, there is a high risk that you will be disqualified from riving, which could potentially result in unemployment, which in turn may transpire into difficulties in paying the mortgage/household bills and family disputes.

If you are facing a totting-up driving ban and are considering making an exceptional hardship application to save your driving licence, contact our specialist legal team on 0330 818 9843 or fill out our enquiry form so that you have the best chance at saving your driving licence and possibly your job.

Our motoring offence solicitors have an excellent success rate at advancing exceptional hardship applications and convincing the Court not to disqualify our clients from driving.

We regularly represent clients facing driving bans around the country.

How to Avoid a Totting Up Ban (Penalty Points Disqualification)

A totting up ban can be avoided if an exceptional hardship application is accepted by the Court. An exceptional hardship application is more likely to be successful if it is assessed and advanced by a highly skilled and experienced motoring offence solicitor.

Commencement of Disqualification

If you appear in the Magistrates Court as a ‘totter’ and either do not make an exceptional hardship application or are unsuccessful with the exceptional hardship application, the driving disqualification will have an immediate effect. If you are appearing in Court as a ‘totter’ you should either attend using public transport or have arrangements for your vehicle to be driven back home. This is because the disqualification will be imposed immediately.
