You can be disqualified from driving for either being convicted of a driving offence, or being given 12 or more penalty points, or endorsements, within a three year period.
Driving while disqualified is a criminal offence and an absolute offence – in legal terms this means there is technically no defence, unless it can be definitively shown that the disqualification was made in a driver’s absence and they were unaware of it.
While there is no defence in the eyes of the law, those who are charged with driving while disqualified can find that, with the help of an experienced solicitor, their fines, penalty or sentence can be reduced. If you have been charged with driving while disqualified, contact Bray & Bray today to find out more about how we can help.

The length of disqualification is at the discretion of a judge, and is based on the severity of the offence. If you have 12 points or more on your licence you can be disqualified for between six months and two years, depending on whether you receive other disqualifications within a certain time frame.
If you have been charged with driving while disqualified, it is vital to work with specialist motoring law solicitors who understand the specifics and key elements of motoring law.
