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.


How We've Helped People

l recently started using Jarmans to handle my divorce mainly because of their reputation.This is quite a stressful time and i was made to feel at ease with Gordon Johnson who is handling my case. l was given clear and straightforward advice and information as to what i needed to do and where to proceed next.Any time i needed advice, had a question or booked an appointment it was dealt with speedily, on the same day in most cases. l would recommend Jarmans to to anyone needing legal advice and cannot fault their professional approach to matters in hand.
