We offer experienced expert legal advice and representation in the event you or your company has been charged with a motoring offence.
Whether you have been charged or have received a notice of intended prosecution or a summons, our driving offence lawyers provide a fixed fee service for an initial meeting to advise you on the most appropriate course of action. We attend all interviews under caution, prepare your case/defence and arrange representation in court, should that be necessary.
Our experience of motoring offences is wide-ranging and long-standing (our team has over 20 years' experience) and we can assist with investigations and cases relating to such matters as;
- Lack of insurance
- Fatal road traffic investigations
- Drink driving
- Careless driving
- Drug driving
- Dangerous driving
- Failure to stop
- Failure to report a road traffic accident
- Failing to provide information about the identity of the driver
- Driving whilst on a mobile phone
- Construction and use offences such as exceeding permitted axle weight
- Road worthiness or driver hours
Our team also has the ability to consider and advance, where appropriate, a special reason. When a special reason is advanced and successful, this gives a court the discretion not to endorse a licence. This may include matters such as spiked drinks, medical emergency and shortness of distance driven.
In circumstances where you may have already lost your licence, we can apply to the court for the early return of a driving licence after a period of disqualification has been served.
At times, disqualification from driving can mean exceptional hardship. Our team recognises the implications of such an event and work with you to prepare arguments for court hearings. At all times our aim is to help you achieve your goal.
If you have had your licence revoked by the DVLA on, perhaps, medical grounds we can assist in appealing. This can involve preparing a case with medical evidence in order to achieve a review by the DVLA. Any such appeal would be heard by the Magistrates Court.
Our driving offence solicitors have an excellent track record of success at court, including mitigating the penalties and sentences given to individuals and companies.
The information provided is on the presumption that you have entered a guilty plea and have a date for your hearing. The final amount of time in order to reach the end of the initial hearing in the Magistrates Court will also be impacted on the efficiency of the Crown Prosecution Service, the listing pattern of the Court, waiting time at Court as these are all factors outside our control.
