Driving Offence Accusations We Can Help You With

The most common violations which can end up in criminal charges, including fines, cancellation of driving license, and imprisonment, include the following:

  • Drink Driving: Considered to be a serious offence by the court, it can lead to fines as high as £5,000, with the likelihood of an accused facing imprisonment of up to 14 years. You can get banned from driving for up to 12 months.
  • Drug Driving: Also known as "driving whilst unfit", it carries penalties, such as license points, hefty fines, and a driving ban.
  • Taxi Touting: This is referred to as "Plying for Hire". If proven, you can end up with a level 4 penalty which can go beyond £2,500, or 6 to 8 points, and a driving ban.
  • Careless Driving: Lane hogging, tailgating, undertaking, and other acts construed as careless driving can cost you 3 to 9 points, £2,500 fine, and discretionary disqualification.
  • Road Accidents: Depending on the severity and the consequences of an accident, a person can expect a heavy fine, a driving ban, and imprisonment.
  • Driving without Insurance: The penalties include disqualification, £200 to £5,000 fine, and even scrapping or destruction of the uninsured vehicle.

You can also become a target of civil actions such as parking, conversation, and trespassing, which can result in heavy fines, revocation of your DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency), imprisonment, or a combination of these.

The Right way to Respond

Accidents or traffic violations can land you in trouble, and how you respond to these charges is significant.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) is a warning issued by the police under Section 1 of the Road Traffic (Offenders) Act 1988. It is a warning that you may face prosecution for a driving offence/offence. The police have 14 days to issue the NIP.

It is best not to respond to an NIP without seeking legal advice. What you write or say may work against you.

If you file a guilty plea, the case can be decided in as little as 30 minutes. However, there is no definite closure time if you contest a case.

Every violation is dealt with differently by the court, and disqualification depends on the gravity of the violation. Driving under the influence of alcohol can result in a disqualification of 12 months or more. The court may also ask you to retake the test for your driving license. Some offences carry points, and it is the discretion of the court to disqualify or exempt you from disqualification. Regardless of the offence, disqualification depends significantly on how a case is presented and the evidence. You can be sure of the best possible outcome when you hire a knowledgeable, professional lawyer.
