Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Ollie, TrustPilot

Flawless Legal Help

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent. I now get to spend the time caring for my nan and helping with my family’s needs.”

What happens if you are caught Driving a Vehicle in a Dangerous Condition?

The Court can impose a mandatory 3 penalty points or a discretionary disqualification and a fine of up to £2,500 for a non-commercial vehicle.

 

Things to remember before accepting a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN)

If you are prosecuted for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, you are likely to receive a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) offering you 3 penalty points and a fine.

If you have 9 penalty points on your licence at the time of the relevant offence, you cannot accept a further FPN as this will activate a 6 month totting up driving disqualification under Section 35 of the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988.

Another example of this is if you were prosecuted for four bald tyres, accepting an FPN for each one would take you to 12 penalty points, therefore making you liable to a totting up disqualification.

If you are facing a potential disqualification as a result of a prosecution for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition, you may wish to seek legal advice and representation.

Totting Up and Exceptional Hardship

If you are liable to a totting up disqualification, you can potentially avoid the disqualification by advancing exceptional hardship in Court.

If exceptional hardship is granted, the Court will endorse your licence with the additional penalty points however, you will not be disqualified.

If you do not advance exceptional hardship at Court, you will be liable to the minimum 6 month totting up disqualification.

New Drivers

If you have held a full UK licence for less than two years, you are considered a new driver.

For those who have held a full UK licence for more than two years, they will have a 12 penalty point allowance on their driving licence.

However, if you are a new driver, you have a 6 penalty point allowance on your driving licence. If you reach 6 penalty points or more, the DVLA will automatically revoke your licence and you will have to sit your theory test and take your practical test again in order to obtain a new licence.

If you are a new driver and you are at risk of a new driver revocation, you may wish to seek legal advice and representation in order to potentially avoid the new driver revocation.

 

Common Examples of Driving a Vehicle in a Dangerous Condition:

  • Bald Tyres
  • Defective Brakes

Other Examples may include:

  • Failing to ensure seatbelts are in a good working order;
  • Carrying too many passengers;
  • An open boot carrying an insecure load
