Motoring Offences

The number of drivers being prosecuted for motoring offences is ever increasing; as technology improves the police are finding it easier to prosecute. A conviction on a motoring offence, could lead to the loss of liberty, loss of a job and the financial hardship that could follow for the individual and their family.

If you have been charged with a motoring offence, take legal advice before you do anything else. Our specialist team can advise your on your legal position, discuss with you any potential defences and advise you whether technical evidence needs to be gathered in support of your defence.

If you have legal expenses insurance and it covers motoring expenses, then you are entitled to instruct a solicitor of your choice, as opposed to a panel solicitor who may not have the necessary expertise in motoring offences. If we are instructed through your legal expenses insurance, your insurers shall be responsible for our fees.
