Hello Alex, many thanks for looking at this for me. He definitely has 6 points currently but may have 9 - he has lost all paperwork but thinks that 3 of the points may have expired. All he can tell me is that the points were endorsed three to four years ago. He said something about them being SP30's??? and that he had 3 points for one offence and 6 for the other. His last exceptional hardship hearing was about four years ago. I am sorry to be so vague - he is quite infuriating in his lack of attention to detail and poor memory! But he is carrying out valuable community work which faces folding if he loses his license, and he is also sole carer for his elderly and sick mother, so I would really like to help him.
He was around 70mph on a clear expressway very early in the morning, but he had just entered a 50 limit with roadworks.
