Gaining 12 points
You do not get prizes for penalty points. When a driver accrues or “tots” 12 points or more within a three year period there are serious consequences. The recommended mandatory period of disqualification for a totting up ban is 6 months.
Consider the effect of points on your licence and disqualification. You may be able to avoid this by arguing exceptional hardship to you and others if you receive a ban.

As a result of the increase in speed cameras and the number of offences that incur penalty points it is easier than ever to accrue 12 points.
This is where you need expert advice. Of course the first and most obvious step is to see whether there is any defence to the offence charged. If there has been a guilty plea or a conviction to a driving offence which carries penalty points there are still other avenues to be explored.
The court has discretion not to disqualify if there are exceptional circumstances in your case for not doing so. This will often be as a result exceptional hardship that will be caused to you or a dependant relative. In some cases hardship caused to employees or colleagues will be so exceptional that the court will exercise the discretion not to disqualify. This is a very technical argument and there is a specialism and skill in advancing it. It can only be argued once in order to avoid a totting ban, careful attention to detail is extremely important.
There may also be other submissions that can be made in respect of alternative sentences.
If you have totted 12 points or more on your driving licence it is essential you get expert motoring advice.
