Can the period of undertaking offered be reduced downwards?

It is always possible (and sensible) to try and negotiate the period offered by the Secretary of State downwards. 

The best way to negotiate a period downwards is by producing a detailed written response backed by documentary evidence countering the allegations made. If this can be produced, then there is the opportunity to negotiate the period of disqualification downwards – although this is not always guaranteed.
