Hey guys in such a low way and really need advice.
Last Tuesday I was drink driving and crashed into a parked car with 3 passengers no serious injuries and everyone is fine I blew 110 at the roadside and 84 at the station I've only had my license for 18 months.
This is really out of character for me I've never been to court before in my 34yrs I have 2 children with disabilities who really rely on me taking them places the disgust I feel is so horrible I wouldn't wish it on anyone can anyone explain what will happen next I haven't received a court date yet and I'm dreading it 😢😢

You will get a minimum 12 months ban,You will be able to drive until then and the reason you have not had a court date is the time of year which will delay DVLA issuing letters.

If you were in custody for the breath test then you would normally be given a court date before you leave the police station. What paperwork were you given by the police, or have they arranged for you to go back to the police station? Where in the UK was this?
A reading of 84 (the roadside one is ignored) will attract a ban of 17-22 months. You will not have to resit your rest even though you have only been driving for 18 months because you get a straight ban and no points.

Ok, they will raise a summons which will be served on you in the post.
It will not be before Christmas as the paperwork takes a while to go through. It could be 2-3 months and they have 6 months to raise a summons before it times out and they cannot proceed against you.
