Wonder if its the same mate he gives a lift to work :surprise:
Sounds like his solicitor has pleaded ' exceptional hardship ' on his behalf.
If you can prove to the court that loosing your driving license would cause exceptional hardship to someone else, the court has the discretion not to disqualify but points would still apply.
In his case the man who works with him would not have a driving license and therefore would be put out of work.:|

You only get one chance ever for that plea.:wink2:

Not strictly true.... Once every three years and should not be the same excuse.
Plenty seem to manage getting plenty of points and avoiding a ban.
Motorist with 62 penalty points legally allowed to drive - BBC News

On another forum I frequent, I am constantly amazed over the number of people caught seemingly bang to rights but who fight it.... often with similar results to this numpty.
Usually based on the sort of advice mentioned... my mate said..... the bloke down the pub who knows about these things said.... numpties all of them.

Got off lightly! :surprise:

I did a speed awareness course a while back and we were told yes you can go and argue about it in court if you want, but you better hope the magistrate is in a good mood that day. (!)

£100 fine usually the much cheaper option.

Sorry.........didn't make myself clear.
You are correct, three years for a plea but not the same one.
Don't know what would happen if he had a different work mate next time though.:grin2:
