Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

What do you want to know this today please?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I want to know what fine and points I am likely to receive. I drive for work so I can't afford to not have my licence revoked
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 2 months ago.

Sorry I was just iN Court. When did you get your licence?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I got my licence in November 2016
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 2 months ago.

The guidelines say 4-6 points or disqualify for 7-28 days.

If you plead guilty you are likely to get the lower end so 4 points and a fine.

So you will have 4 points and need to make sure you dont get any others under the new driver rules.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Can I take the disqualification without this effecting me losing my licence completely, in the event I get 6 points?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 2 months ago.

You wont get 6 points and no, its up to the Court whether they give you 6 points or disqualify you.

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Oh so I don't get the choice between 1 or the other? Would there be an option for a speed awareness course?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 2 months ago.

its probably too fast for the speed awareness. You are not given the choice of points etc. That is down to the court.

Does that clairfy?
