Proving Exceptional Hardship
In some cases, when exceptional hardship can be proven to the court, a prosecution can be softened or avoided altogether, giving you a better chance of saving your driving licence. Examples of hardship include:
- Being unable to perform senior manager roles, resulting in instability for employees
- Working in a role that involves keeping the public healthy and safe, e.g. a paramedic, firefighter or police officer
- Losing your job due to a driving offence – this also requires a strong defence case
