Jarmans Solicitors help with Driving and Motoring offences

Driving and traffic laws are specifically designed to be understood and are in place to keep all road users and pedestrians safe. For the most part, they are designed to be clearly understandable and adhering to them is a responsibility of all motorised vehicle users. For this reason, the law demands that even the minor road traffic offences be punished with a minimum of penalty points on a driver’s licence. For more serious offences which have led to death or serious injury, the courts can hand down a prison sentence as punishment.

Losing your driving licence or having points added to it can have a dramatic impact on your life, particularly if your job requires you to have a clean driving licence, and a criminal conviction for a more serious road traffic offence can preclude you from working in certain industries.

Road traffic offences include:

  • Drink driving
  • Drug driving
  • Speeding
  • Using a mobile phone or device whilst at the wheel
  • Failure to provide a specimen
  • Failure to stop or report an accident
  • Driving without insurance
  • Dangerous and careless driving
  • Death by dangerous driving
  • Driving endorsements

For anyone who has been charged, or expects to be charged, with a driving offence it maybe in their best interest that they seek advice from a criminal defence solicitor. Additionally, if you receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NOIP) and believe you are innocent, you should also speak to a solicitor.

Our solicitors will sit down with you and advise you of the best possible course of action and will represent you in court where needed.

Motoring Offences In The Magistrates’ Court

We defend all driving offences. Many offences result in penalty points being endorsed on your driving licence.

If you obtain 12 penalty points, ordinarily you will be disqualified as a ‘totter.’ If we convince the court that there is ‘Exceptional Hardship,’ especially if the hardship applies to innocent third parties such as children or employees, the Court will allow you to continue to drive.

For some offences, such as drink driving, disqualification usually follows. However, if we successfully argue that there were ‘Special Reasons’ you will not be disqualified.

We realise that keeping your driving licence is important to you and will fight for you to stay on the roads.

For contested Trials, Special Reasons and Exceptional Hardships our fees are based upon hourly rates. If you intend to plead guilty and would like us to speak to court for you, to ensure that you receive the lowest possible sentence, our fixed fees start from £550 plus 20% VAT.

Key Stages

If you plead guilty and intent to accept the disqualification and endorsements, the case will usually conclude on the day you enter your guilty plea in court. Contested matters are usually listed for trials within 8-14 weeks.
