Perhaps more so than in any other area, it is important that you contact us as soon as you have contact with the police in relation to any motoring matter.  Strict time limits apply on what the police can and must do and in terms of your response to any Notice of Intended Prosecution.  We can advise you on what constitutes and offence; what are the available defences and how relevant are they to your particular case?  We can explore the weaknesses in the prosecution case or the in the procedure which they have undertaken.  We can challenge their case and conduct a trial on your behalf.

 

If you case is a guilty plea or you are convicted of a motoring offence we can use our expertise and specialist knowledge to secure the best achievable outcome.  We have a fantastic success rate in avoiding driving bans for our clients under the totting up provisions.  In such cases where a driver attracts 12 or more penalty points, they are liable for a minimum period of disqualification of 6 months under the totting up provisions.  With our expertise and skilled advocacy we can invite the Magistrates to exercise their discretion not to disqualify but to find that there is exceptional hardship and reasons not to disqualify.  Such reasons can involve harm to other people who are no way involved in the offence.

 

We recognise that losing a licence can be devastating to an individual, their employment prospects and business.  It is important, therefore, that you act quickly and contact us for specialist advice straight away.

 

Removal of driving ban

 

If you have been banned from driving for a period of more than 2 years, it is possible in certain circumstances for us to apply to remove the driving ban.  Certain time limits and restrictions apply but we can advise you on that and what evidence will be needed to support your application.  Please contact us to discuss the prospects of your case.
