Andrew Smith was caught speeding and as he already had nine points on his driving licence he was facing a minimum six months disqualification from driving. As a national sales director driving more than 35,000 miles a year for business he could not afford to lose his licence.

Andrew turned to Hewitts Motor team for help.

He said: “As soon as I received the notice of intended prosecution I knew I was in trouble, as I already had nine points. Hewitts saw me immediately and explained all the options.

“My solicitor told me that I had a strong argument to keep my licence, even with an eventual 12 points on it. The preparation of my case was meticulous and, on the day of the court hearing, my solicitor dealt with every argument and presented my case in such a way that the Magistrates seemed to have no choice but to allow me to keep driving.

“A disqualification would have been devastating for me professionally and personally, but with quality and professional representation I was able to avoid that.”

Andrew Smith, County Durham.
