Course Overview

During this bite size webinar experienced solicitor-advocate Lisa Collins will discuss the key motoring offences which viewers will advise upon, the penalty points which these offences carry and the likely consequences, should a client or ‘totter’ acquires 12 or more penalty points through the culmination of one or more offences in any 3 year period.
