Driving Offences

For many people, being able to drive is an integral part of their lifestyle. Losing a driving licence can lead to loss of a job or have an impact on family life. More than 500,000 people are prosecuted each year for driving offences. We act for people facing all kinds of offences under road traffic law, but especially:

  • Careless driving
  • Drink driving
  • Dangerous driving
  • Driving without insurance
  • Failing to stop and report an accident
  • Driving whilst disqualified
  • Mobile phone offences
  • Exceptional hardship cases
  • Totting up (12 points on your licence)
  • Reinstatement of your licence after it has been revoked by the DVLA

It is important that you receive advice as soon as you are aware of any potential prosecution. Even if you are intending to admit the driving offence as we can often help to make sure the offences are correct and to mitigate or reduce the penalty, for example helping you to keep your driving licence.

If you receive 12 or more points on your driving licence the court will normally disqualify you for a minimum of 6 months but in some cases we can present to the court the hardship this will cause to avoid you being disqualified.
