    yeah hun,went witrh brett a few years back ..he had jusy lost 6 pointds on his license..as soon as he got a clean one back..he got caught again

    doing somthing silly like a 70 in a 40 or summat like that ...he got 6 points and a fine......

    all i can say is to lay it on thick that you need your car for work and it is so detrmental to your employment that you drive....whatever it is thaT you do hun.....could could also add a few white lies saying you have to help your parent s do the shopping excetera as they are not that abnle anymore...blah blah blah...but dont make it too obvbious hun

    I was in court in March for doing 108 in a 70. I got a £300 fine and 21 day ban, but no points.

    Make sure you are apologetic, make sure they know you are sorry for doing it. Dress smart, and be very submissive (like a naughty schoolboy). Tell them your driving style has already changed for the better, even before coming to court today. Tell them as soon as you saw the first letter that shocked you enough to change, as the whole court process is so nerve-wracking, that you'd never want to do it ever again.

    ^^ all true in my case

    Remember the court is used to seeing chavs in tracksuits all day every day, who are in there for stealing bling from pensioners. Make sure you apologize for wasting so much of the courts time, dealing with someone (you) who should know better.

    The car for work thing: If you try to use this excuse they will rip you to shreds, you need to prove EXACTLY why you need the car for work, and they know all the excuses now so don't try to feed them bull. If you use the car for work thing, they will suggest taking holidays, want to know if public transport would suit, want to know how much the taxis will cost etc etc.

    Well after sitting in court waiting room for 3.5 hours, was told it's lunch break, come back at 2:30pm....

    Lunch it is then and back for another few hours waiting. There are soooo many weirdo's and Chav's in Reading. I thought it was a nice place before today.

    Gotta agree though - it is not a nice process so far - and I haven't even been in yet!!
