Having previously had a clean licence and no convictions, I was unfortunately banned from driving in May 08 till August 09, for being over the legal drink drive limit. Resulting from my loss of licence, I have had to close my business which has resulted in the loss of my home and I am currently unemployed. Having no income, I am currently unable to pay the court fine or provide financially for my children and I am experiencing extreme hardship.
Rather than remain unemployed and on income support till the end of my ban, what opportunity if any exists for me to appeal to get my licence back earlier to enable me to obtain employment, pay my fine, get off income support and provide for my children?
Would a court consider an application based on previous character, hardship encurred from loss of licence and the genuine desire by me to get off government funding into employment and provide for my children? The reinstatement of my licence would enable me to achieve this.
