Driving Offences

When driving, one momentary lapse of focus can change a routine journey into a terrible ordeal. Even careful, conscientious drivers can find themselves facing serious charges after an accident, whether damage, injury or death resulted.

Our specialist motoring solicitors are experienced in representing clients facing a wide range of driving offences, including:

  • Dangerous driving
  • Careless driving
  • Driving whilst under the influence
  • Driving without insurance or MOT certificate
  • Speeding offences

We regularly instruct members of the Bar, giving advice and guidance when needed and making sure that cases are allocated with barristers that have relevant experience. By working closely with a wide range of experts, we can put forth an effective defence, including “special reasons” to avoid disqualification for clients who plead guilty and/or are found guilty.
