VMCL Ban Reduction Calculator

This calculator has been provided to assist Courts when working out reductions in disqualification periods and establishing course completion dates.

The calculator has two parts:

  • The lower part of the screen, the 'Ready Reckoner', shows details of the most commonly used periods of disqualification, listing the reductions calculated as per the Court Sentencing Guidelines.  Also shown is the date the offender can drive again and the date by which the course must be completed.
  • The 'Driving Ban Calculator' shown at the top of the screen caters for those cases where the disqualification period cannot be found amongst those listed in the Ready Reckoner.  In these cases, check the date is correct in the 'Court Date' box and amend if necessary. Enter the full disqualification period then click 'Calculate'.  The details you require will appear in the line below.

Occasionally, depending on the age of your computer's operating platform, a line of text may appear under your menu bar at the top of the screen, which reads as follows: "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer.  Click here for options."  Simply 'Click' on the screen where indicated and a small drop down menu will appear.  Click on 'Allow blocked content' and then click on 'Yes' to activate the Calculator.  To operate the Calculator our program needs to access your computer's clock, which also features the date setting and this is used to generate the results.

On opening the Calculator the current date is automatically inserted in the Court Date box.  If you wish to print the Ready Reckoner for today's Court's proceedings, open the Calculator and simply click the grey 'Print' button on the right hand side of the screen.

If you wish to print data for the following day's proceedings, enter the appropriate date in the 'Enter Court Date' box and click 'Calculate'.  Click the grey 'Print' button on the right hand side of the screen to print a copy.  Using this method you can print data for the whole week should you so wish.

The Driving Ban Calculator has a built in safety feature, preventing a reduction that is in excess of 25% of the original ban and has been constructed in full accordance with the guidelines laid down by the Sentencing Guidelines Council.
