Have you received a summons for speeding or drink driving? Did you know that when you reach 12 points on your licence you can be banned for 6 months?
We know that driving a car is not a luxury, for most people it is a necessity. If you are facing prosecution or disqualification for an offence you need specialist help.
With an increased number of offences aimed at the motorist which lead to the swift accumulation of penalty points and potential disqualification from driving, you need a solicitor who is able to represent your interests.
We provide advice and representation for all aspects of motoring law, including:
- Applying for the return of your driving licence early
- Drink driving
- Drug driving
- Drunk in charge
- Failure to provide drive details
- Failure to stop/ report an accident
- Failure to provide a specimen
- Mobile phone offences
- New driver
- No insurance
- Police station interviews
- Reopening a magistrates case after sentence in your absence
- Special reasons for saving your licence
- Totting up
- Undue care and attention
We have argued “exceptional hardship” for clients, enabling them to continue to drive with 12 points on their licence and we have also successfully defended drink driving charges on behalf of our clients.
We can check that the correct police procedure has been followed in each individual case and advise you if it has not. We aim to ensure that for a guilty plea, the sentence is kept to a minimum.
We will advise you on all your options and will arrange your representation in court by a barrister, if needed.
We are particularly experienced at advising senior executives in connection with their motoring offences. We realise just how important it is for them to retain the ability to drive.
In some cases we have managed to have a summons for a driving offence dropped completely or reduced to a lesser offence through strong representation of our client’s case to the prosecution.
