Driving Offences Our Lawyers Can Defend Nationally
Our experienced team of driving offence lawyer can represent you if you are being prosecuted or investigated for the following motoring offences:
Are you at Risk of Receiving a Driving Ban?
Whether a motorist is disqualified from driving will depend on several factors such as:
- The length of time the license has been held for;
- Whether there are any active penalty points;
- The offence the motorist is facing prosecution for;
- If there have been any previous driving disqualifications;
- If there have been any previous Exceptional Hardship Arguments;
- Aggravating and mitigating factors of the offence;
- Whether the motorist has appointed a Specialist Motoring Defence Lawyer
Certain offences such as drink driving, dangerous driving and failing to provide a specimen for analysis attract a mandatory driving disqualification if a person pleads guilty or is found guilty following trial. However, there are several offences where the Court has the discretion to either impose penalty points or a driving ban. Examples of such offences are speeding, careless driving, failing to stop / report and driving without insurance.
If you would like to know whether you are at risk of receiving a disqualification, then please call our lawyers on 03452229955 or complete our contact form for a no obligation telephone assessment of your motoring prosecution.

Speeding Offence Lawyers
Our specialist Speeding Offence Solicitors and Barristers have obtained excellent results at defending motorists at the Magistrates’ Court that have received a postal requisition or summons to attend the Magistrates’ Court.

Drivers that do not obtain legal advice for a speeding offence could receive unnecessary penalty points on their driving licence and in certain situations a driving ban, either due to the high speed or the accumulation of 12 or more penalty points. If a motorist is facing a prosecution for significantly exceeding the speed limit, they may also face a prosecution for dangerous driving.
If you face the possibility of a totting up driving ban (Penalty Points Disqualification), our expert driving offence solicitors are available to offer you the right legal advice. You need to try and avoid a driving disqualification. Our solicitors have many years of experience in representing clients for totting-up and can advance Exceptional Hardship Arguments to avoid you receiving a lengthy driving disqualification.
Totting-Up occurs when a motorist accumulates (or will accumulate) 12 or more active penalty points on their driving licence within a period of 3 years. Once the Court becomes aware that a motorist will reach 12 or more active penalty points as a result of a new motoring offence, the Court will Summons the driver to attend a Court Hearing to impose a driving ban of at least 6 months.
An example of this would be a motorist that already has 9 penalty points on their driving licence and then receives a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) for a further motoring offence such as speeding. In such circumstances the motorist would be called upon to attend Court for a driving disqualification, because the new offence of speeding will result in a total of 12 or more active penalty points.
If a motorist has previously been disqualified from driving for more than 56 days within the past three years, the Court will impose a driving ban of at least 12 months.
In cases of Totting-Up a motorist is open to make an ‘Exceptional Hardship’ application to avoid a driving ban.
Exceptional Hardship Arguments
A case for Exceptional Hardship can be made when a motorist is facing a driving disqualification as a result of Totting-Up.
Exceptional Hardship Arguments are used if a motorist would suffer hardship which is above and beyond the hardship an ordinary motorist would receive as a result of a driving ban.
If you are considering making an application for Exceptional Hardship, appointing an experienced motoring defence lawyer at the earliest opportunity is recommended. This will ensure your case is properly prepared before attending Court and the argument is properly advanced to the Court with appropriate supporting case law, legislation and evidence. Legal representation will provide you with the best chances of avoiding a driving disqualification.
Examples of grounds could include:
- Loss of employment / income for you or anyone that relies upon you or your business
- Loss of your home as a result of no income
- Damage to your business / income
- Harm / detriment to people that are dependent upon you
If the exceptional hardship argument is prepared with legal skill and submitted properly to the Court, it will take into consideration all your personal and financial circumstances and you will be required to give evidence at Court under oath.
This is a very complex area of law and one in which legal advice should be sought as soon as possible. A successful application will result in the motorist still receiving the points however, the motorist will still be allowed to continue to drive.
