Recent Motoring Offence Cases
Covering All Driving Offences Including Speeding
Speeding is the most common motoring offence committed throughout England and Wales. The first notification that you will receive is called a ‘Section 172 Notice’ requiring the registered keeper to inform the police of the identity of the person driving when a speed trap was triggered. It is crucial to obtain legal advice early in the process, as a conviction for Failing to Provide Driver Details attracts 6 penalty points.
The penalties that can be imposed for Speeding Offences occurring in Derby can range from penalty points or a driving ban of up to 56 days. If you already have points endorsed upon your driving licence, there is a risk that you could accumulate 12 or more points on your driving licence which will result in a Totting Up Ban of at least 6 months.
If you are unsure of how many active penalty points you have on your driving licence at present, you can check online by using the DVLA Website.
What Our Clients Say
My initial meeting with Manjinder himself, was undoubtedly professional and threw me under no false pretenses about what could and could not be achieved. I was represented by Mr Shoker, an associate of Mr Kang, who was both exceptionally competent and sincere. I am very grateful for Mr Shoker and Kang & Co’s assistance, and would recommend them for any relevant legal matters. Charlie
Amazing service overall. I was impressed with how fast I had responses from emails with any queries or questions. On the day of my meeting with Kang & Co all options were made very clear and the advice I was given provided the result I wanted! I highly recommend Kang & Co, especially for motoring convictions.
