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.
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 driving, 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 experienced driving offences solicitors on 0345 222 9955 or fill out our enquiry form so that you have the best chance at saving your driving licence and possibly your job.

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.
