Appeal against the decision of the magistrates court to impose a ban of six months for totting up.

A driver who was an experienced doctor unsuccessfully represented himself in the magistrates’ court. He had reached 12 penalty points and was disqualified from driving for six months. He had put forward an exceptional hardship argument to try to avoid a ban, but this was rejected by the magistrates. We represented him on appeal to the Crown Court and the court decided that he should not be disqualified from driving.
