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.’
Statute – What is the Law?
The offence of Dangerous Driving is contained within Section 2, Road Traffic Act 1988.
A person who drives a mechanically propelled vehicle dangerously on a road or other public place is guilty of an offence.
Venue – Where a trial will take place?
The offence of Dangerous Driving is triable either way; this means that a trial could take place in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court.
Sentencing Powers for Dangerous Driving
If a defendant is convicted or pleads guilty to dangerous driving and the case is being sentenced in the Magistrates’ Court, the Magistrates’ Court must disqualify for at least 12 months, can impose a custodial sentence (prison sentence) of up to 6 months and impose a fine of an unlimited amount.
If a defendant is convicted or pleads guilty to dangerous driving and the case is being sentenced in the Crown Court, the Crown Court must disqualify for at least 12 months, can impose a custodial sentence (prison sentence) of up to 2 years and impose a fine of an unlimited amount.

He achieved the best possible outcome for us at the Inquiry – our license was not revoked and our fleet was not curtailed.
I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years.
