I lost my drivers licence last week doing 30 over and I've been suspended for 3 months. I'm a green P plater. I'm going to court next week.

I've got 3 references and pleading guilty but I'm asking for leniency due to my circumstances.

I'm a 4th year apprentice mobile plant mechanic. I do a lot of away from home work and breakdowns/ call outs and a loss of drivers licence for me means no job. Also, it's my first and only run in with the police.

What are my chances of getting leniency with the length of suspension?
