Section 35 Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988
Disqualification for repeated offences.
(a)a person is convicted of an offence, and
(b)the penalty points to be taken into account on that occasion number twelve or more,
the court must order him to be disqualified for not less than the minimum period unless the court is satisfied, having regard to all the circumstances, that there are grounds for mitigating the normal consequences of the conviction and thinks fit to order him to be disqualified for a shorter period or not to order him to be disqualified.
