Definition of 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.

Best Driving Offence Solicitors

I have previously dealt with Carla Riozzi at Kang & Co and would highly recommend her. She was professional and knowledgeable about the law. She kept me up to date with my case and I found her very approachable. I would definitely instruct this firm again. Thank you for your assistance.

Mr Khan

We required advice and representation at a Public Inquiry with the Birmingham Traffic Commissioner and appointed Manjinder of Kang & Co after reading an article that he had published on Transport online. He achieved the best possible outcome for us at the Inquiry – our license was not revoked and our fleet was not curtailed.

Jodie Wood

I highly recommend Kang & Co Solicitors. From the outset communication was excellent. Manjinder Kang was very professional, polite and showed the highest level of integrity throughout the process. Thank you for the representation in court, which was a must.

Jane Longstaff

I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years. Mr Kang gave my nephew detailed advice on obtaining the necessary evidence for his court case. Mr Shocker represented him at the magistrates court and instead of being banned he received a modest fine. All within a week or two!

Howard Jacobs

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.

Mr J. McBrearty

An exceedingly competent, professional and dedicated practice lead from the front by Manjinder Kang.

Rahal Miah

Manjinder and the team at Kang & Co are absolutely fantastic. From my first 10 minute consultation right through to the final outcome I felt like I was in great hands. The team asked everything they needed from me and formed a defence for my case. I don’t feel like I could of done it without the team at Kang & Co.

Stephen McC

Kang and Co were exceptional in helping me retain my licence after an unfair dash-cam case was brought against me. I was faced with 6 point, a ban and £800 fine, and I received none of these. Win, win, win! Very happy with them.

I cannot thank Manjinder for all the help and support he gave us prior to and up to my husbands court date. This could of been a very testing time should my husband not have won his case. Special thanks to Mr Shoker who was fantastic on the day.

Mrs Noone

This was the first time ever I had to appear in court for totting up points on my license and had no knowledge of how it works. Megan was the most reassuring face on the day of my court attendance and was very lovely and supportive throughout. Even if I had faced a driving ban, I would still recommend Kang & Co as they definitely are experts in their field and will do their utmost to helpful. I was amazed at how smoothly everything went.

A very straightforward process with minimal stress, given the circumstances. I was listened to, my questions were answered clearly and I was advised of the best and worst case scenarios right from the start.

I was summonsed for a speeding offence on the M6 toll where the speed recorded was essentially an automatic disqualification. I pleaded guilty and engaged the services of Kang and Co to plead my case not to be disqualified from driving. My outcome was positive and I retained my licence. I would recommend Kang and Co to anyone who has the need for Legal Representation.
