Private Motorists

My Legal Concierge expert solicitors use their vast knowledge and expertise in road traffic legislation, rules of evidence and court procedure to investigate your case and see whether you have a suitable defence that will stand up in court. You may want to plead guilty to the offence, but have special reasons or exceptional hardship to plea in mitigation, which your solicitor can draft and provide representation in court. Where a defence doesn’t exist, they will do their best to reduce any penalty that will be imposed upon conviction. Our recommended solicitors can advise on: 

  • Penalty points – even if you have accumulated 12 points there are exceptional circumstances in which you can avoid an outright ban
  • Speeding offences – where appropriate it is possible to challenge the recorded speed on various police devices including speed cameras 
  • Drink or drug driving – even if you were driving under the influence of alcohol and recreational drugs such as cannabis
  • Driving ban appeals  - acting quickly in preparing  a defence to challenge a conviction that resulted in a driving ban or preparing an application for the early return of your licence
  • Failure to provide information in relation to the identification of a driver – when you genuinely do not know who was driving the vehicle at the time of the offence or you did not receive the notice of intended prosecution and you are now being prosecuted
  • Driving without due care and attention
  • Dangerous or careless driving 
  • Driving whilst using a mobile telephone
  • Driving without insurance or up to date MOT
  • Driving whilst disqualified
  • Failing to stop and report an accident
  • Failing to provide a specimen – when you suffer a medical condition that can provide a defence, it is suspected that the breath test machine you blew into was faulty or the right procedures haven’t been followed.
  • Traffic light offences 
  • Driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence
