My brother in law was was disqualified from driving last month during a court hearing. At the time of the offence (In Oct 2017) he already had 9 points on the license and was caught doing 88/70

6 points came off at the end of 2017. So he is currently on 3 points + the 6 month ban.

He did not really prepare for his initial hearing hence the outcome. But submitted an appeal to the magistrates court and CPS.

The magistrates court has contacted him and asked him to attending an hearing for the application to suspend disqualification.

Is this normal to have a hearing to suspend the disqualification? What evidence should he take with him (Employers letter etc?)

Will another hearing take place after this one to discuss the disqualification?

Also he will be representing himself as as cannot afford to pay for legal representation.

It’s not at all unusual to have a hearing to decide whether to suspend disqualification when an appeal is pending.

What does he propose to present at the appeal, a defence or is he just appealing the sentence (disqualification)?

If I assume he’s appealing sentence, on what basis is he appealing it? It would probably help to have a summary of that at the hearing to show he has a realistic chance of succeeding, but I’m not that familiar with that process and it may not be raised.

Is this the same brother-in-law who last October was you?

While posted in October that offence was in April although the other parts are very similar.

Yes, sorry, that was the thread I meant. The reason I asked the OP the question rather than just merging them was to give them the benefit of the doubt, but the details of the offence/points/etc seemed remarkably similar.
