Sentencing powers for driving whilst disqualified?

This is a very serious motoring offence that the Court can impose a severe sentence because in most circumstances a motorist has deliberately acted against a Court order and as such the sentence must reflect the seriousness of breaching a Court order.

If you are found guilty of driving whilst disqualified the Court can impose 6 penalty points onto your driving licence however, in most circumstances the Court will usually impose a further period of disqualification. The duration of the additional disqualification will depend upon the specific circumstances of the offence having taken into account the aggravating and mitigating features put before the Court.

It is not uncommon for the Court to impose a custodial (prison) sentence for the offence of driving whilst disqualified. The Court has the power to impose a prison sentence of up to 6 months, for this reason, it is crucial that anyone charged with this offence is represented at Court by a specialist driving offence solicitor or barrister.

Excellent service from initial contact to finishing the court case. Would recommend to anyone.

Robert Morris

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.

Rahal Miah

Mr Kang who met with me and Mr Wheeler who represented me in court were brilliant, could not have survived the experience without them! Not sure how anyone could, as I, approach an experience like this was for me, a first time appearance in court without seeking help, advice and representation from a lawyer/s such as these two great examples.

Francis Drew

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

Excellent service delivered by a dependable team. Found them online and no regrets with the quality of representation they offered throughout the case. Always arrived early and ensured good communication at every stage of representation. Corporate service but no hidden charges so you know what you can afford right from initial meeting.

Mr Khan

I would highly recommend using Kang & Co Solicitors. I received high quality services for the duration of my case, with the right level of honesty and reassurance. All advice provided was extremely clear and Mr Kang always went above and beyond to ensure that I had fully understood any matters discussed.

Robin Prasad

The preparation on my case was second to none, this began from the moment I contacted Manjinder Kang and his team, and they were very proactive to look into my case ASAP. The quality of representation in Court at Court was excellent, I was assigned with a Barrister, and someone who had extensive experience in this field. The outcome of your case 6 points, although I was expecting a ban as minimum.

Mr Singh

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!
