VMCL Ban Reduction Calculator                            

This calculator can be used to assist Courts when working out reductions in disqualification periods and establishing course completion dates.

Please note this version of the calculator can generate date in months, weeks or days.  If you print this information for use in Court, please ensure you select the unit of time required by your Sheriff or legal team.  The calculator is deliberately flexible to satisfy a number of needs.

The following has been extracted verbatim from Section 34A of the Road Traffic Offenders Act:

"For relevant offences where a disqualification of 12 months or more is imposed, the sentencer is able to reduce the disqualification for a period of not less than 3 months and not more than one quarter of the unreduced period.

When it makes the order, the court must specify a date for completion of the course which is at least two months before the end of the reduced period of disqualification."

- Section 34A of the Road Traffic Offenders Act
