The phrase ‘totting up’ is used to describe the circumstance in which you exceed more than 12 points on your UK driving licences within 3 years; this will result to a ban from driving for minimum of 6 months. It is worth noting that a ‘totting up’ ban will be carried out through a Court hearing and that a ban can be avoided if the courts accept a proposal of ‘exceptional hardship’.

Exceptional hardship arguments

Before any action is taken on your ‘totting up’ conviction the Court will give the defendant the chance to raise an ‘exceptional hardship’ dispute which can stop the disqualification.  There are no specific legal definitions for ‘exceptional hardships’ it will vary according to the circumstance.
