Special reasons commonly heard of are things such as laced drinks, shortness of distance and driving during a genuine emergency. However, this is a non exhaustive list and special reasons are often a very sensible way of resolving a case in the Defendant’s best interests.
Like claims for exceptional hardship, this is a two stage test where the Court must firstly decide whether special reasons apply before secondly deciding whether to exercise their discretion in favour of the Defendant.
