Was your second offence within 10 years, were you an HRO? From what I understand that carries a minimum 3 years. A drink driving awareness course even if ordered by the court cannot reduce the ban to under 36 months? That's what the sheriff and my solicitor told me . And I was not offered a course for my second offenceWow, that was a tough sentence.
I blew 124 for my first offence. I didn't crash, but I only received a 20 month ban and a £400.
The 2nd time I blew 96 and again was fined £400 with 36 month ban reduced to 27 with the course.
