Any offences that carry penalty points are included in the totting up procedure. If you have received six points for a failure to furnish and subsequently receive two three point penalties for speeding this totals 12 points and will usually result in a potential disqualification.
The court will listen to pleas of exceptional hardship. This means that if you would face exceptional hardship by being banned from driving, they may allow you to continue driving even with 12 points or more. Exceptional hardship means that you would face greater hardship than would normally be faced when being disqualified from driving.
Courts have discretionary powers to determine whether you face exceptional hardship, and while a disqualification is the usual punishment, they also have the power to impose a shorter ban than they normally would. With experienced and professional driving offence solicitors, it may be possible to avoid disqualification but you should get in touch as soon as you are aware of the possibility of facing a totting up ban.
