Avoiding  A Driving Ban in Cheltenham Spa

If you have been charged with a motoring offence, you should firstly contact one of our specialist solicitors to establish whether you need legal representation for your case. In certain circumstances you may not require representation, if our lawyers form the opinion that you do not require a lawyer for your driving offence, they will inform you from the outset.

If you have a defence, our lawyers will inform you and will recommend that you plead not guilty. We would prepare your case for Trial and provide you with the best chance of being found Not Guilty.

In other circumstances, you may require a solicitor to represent you at Court for your Sentence Hearing to ‘Mitigate’ on your behalf. This is so that you receive the lowest sentence possible. Our lawyers frequently represent clients before Cheltenham Spa Magistrates’ Court. They have many years’ experience in convincing the Court to take into consideration personal mitigation, which can result in avoiding a Driving Ban.

If you already have 6 to 9 penalty points endorsed upon your driving licence and you are facing additional points for a further driving offence, our lawyers can be instructed to make a Special Reasons Argument or an Exceptional Hardship Argument in an attempt to avoid a Driving Ban.

Act Fast If Facing A Potential Driving Offence Prosecution

Driving offences can attract sentences of varying severity, ranging from penalty points endorsed upon your driving licence, through to a Driving Ban, and even a prison sentence.

If you are facing potential prosecution for a motoring offence, it is vital that you take specialist legal advice as soon as possible. Our solicitors and barristers provide free telephone advice to motorists that have received a “Notice of Intended Prosecution” (NIP) or a Court Summons to appear before Cheltenham Magistrates Court for a motoring prosecution.

Our solicitors can also be instructed to attend the Police Station with you for a Voluntary Police Interview.

Covering the full spectrum of Motoring Offences

As a specialist motoring offence law firm, Kang & Co specialises in defending clients for every kind of driving offence. One of the more common offences we are appointed on is Dangerous Driving.

Dangerous driving is the most serious (non-fatal) motoring offence that you can face. If convicted, you can face a custodial sentence of up to two years and a lengthy disqualification period. When you can re-apply for your licence, you can also expect extended re-testing.

The offence is committed when the way a person drives falls far below what would be expected of a competent, careful driver and it would be evident to a competent and careful driver that driving in that way would be dangerous.

Whether a person’s driving amounts to driving dangerously is assessed by a test that concentrates upon the nature of the driving rather than the driver’s state of mind at the relevant time. The first aspect of the test requires the driving to fall ‘far below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver’ and the second aspect of the test requires the dangerousness of the driving to be ‘obvious to a competent and careful driver.’

Phone & Video Meetings

As we are a specialist law firm, we are frequently appointed to represent clients across the length and breath of England and Wales. Some of our clients are unable to attend our offices because they may live some distance away or they may have limited time and availability to meet with our lawyers in person at our offices, as a result we offer clients the option of a video or telephone meeting with one of our specialist lawyers. If you appoint us to represent you, as part of the case preparation, a meeting will be required and this meeting can take place as a video or telephone conference call. Some of our clients prefer this rather than meeting at our offices, as it eliminates their travelling time and can be done from the convenience of their home or place of work via video conferencing software such as Zoom or GoToMeeting. If you would like more information about having a telephone or video conference, please speak to one of our lawyers and they will be able to answer any questions you may have.

Testimonials

“Kang & Co Solicitors is a leading driving offences solicitors firm that attains the best possible result for every client.” – Cllr. Morgan Tarr

“I called a few other firms before contacting Kang & Co Solicitors and the impression I got was that the other lawyers just wanted to progress my case to trial, which would have cost me several thousands in legal fees. I then called Kang & Co Solicitors and spoke with one of their lawyers on the phone, he explained everything is plain English. He explained to me why a trial wasn’t the best course of action to take in my case, due to a number of issues in my case, he provided me with honest and genuine advice which made sense. I then instructed Kang & Co to represent me at Court and I still received an excellent result without having to spend thousands of pounds on a trial. I appreciate the honest advice from this firm and their excellent client care throughout my case, I would certainly recommend this company to friends and family members looking for an honest and genuine Criminal Defence Lawyer in Birmingham. Thanks for your help.” – Mark Thompson
