Most of you, my readers, hold a valid driver’s license. Probably you have been driving for a long time and maybe even your license is clean. But this is not how it looks for everybody though. Accidents happen, and at some point in our lives we might get involved in one whether we are to blame for it or not.
If you have done something that cause your license to be suspended and you cannot drive at the moment, don’t lose hope just yet. Your reality might not be as gloomy is you might think. Here are some steps you might want to take:
1. Find some other arrangements if possible. Your family members or friends are your best choice as most of them should be happy to drive you to places. This will be the case if you have good relations with your family members. In the worst case, paying them for some expenses such as fuel might be a good idea.
2. If you haven’t been able to convince your family members to offer you lifts on a daily basis, consider other means of getting to places. Public transportation in many areas of the country can be better than you might think. If this is something that doesn’t suit you, you might want to use taxi services or other services such as Uber for example. They are more expensive than public transportation, but they are reliable and they should get you on time where you need to go.
3. Consider hiring 1 Motoring Solicitors to help you to end your ban sooner. Not everything is set in stone. Only because you committed an offence in the past and were banned for it doesn’t have to mean that you cannot appeal to the magistrate to have it removed earlier. Many people who appeal have their license returned to them and can start driving immediately. Of course, there are certain criteria that need to be fulfilled in order to apply and you should be aware of them, but rest assured that qualified solicitors will try their best efforts to ensure that they get as much from the magistrate for you as possible.
