Review Your SQE 1 Practice Records

Examination Timing: 00H00M27S

Julia Johnson, represented by your firm, has a court appearance on 8 May 2023 for a speeding offence committed on 1 March 2023. She was recorded driving at 34mph in a 30mph zone and intends to plead guilty. Julia's driving licence reveals prior speeding offences on 1 April 2020, 10 February 2021, and 30 November 2022, each resulting in 3 penalty points. If Julia is disqualified from driving, how long will her period of disqualification be for?

Under the penalty point system, if Julia accumulates 12 or more points within three years, she will be disqualified for a minimum period of six months unless she has been disqualified for a period of 56 days or more within the last three years, which she has not. The court typically does not impose a longer disqualification than the minimum period unless there are exceptional circumstances. Option A is incorrect as 56 days is too short and not applicable under the penalty point system. Option B, while common in practice, does not mention it as the minimum period. Option D is incorrect as Julia has not been disqualified for more than 56 days within the last three years. Option E is incorrect as it overstates the typical disqualification period for the given circumstances. 


Key Point: Understanding the disqualification periods under the penalty point system is essential for advising clients accurately on the potential outcomes of their driving offences and the cumulative impact of their driving record.
