Defence Services: Road Traffic Representation

This area of law can cover the most trivial of transgressions of the Road Traffic Acts, right up to offences where lives are lost and the courts will treat matters with the appropriate degree of seriousness. To most motorists, the real fear is the loss of a driving licence for whatever period, either by outright disqualification or under the totting up provisions:-

 

12 penalty points acquired can have you back on the bus.

 

The law does allow people to keep your licence with 12 penalty points or more but only certain circumstances of exceptional hardship. The court needs persuading that the driver or others will experience such difficulties and this is what we can do.

 

The courts also can be asked to find special reasons not to disqualify or endorse your licence - ask us how could this apply to you?

 

Frequently asked questions that we are asked to deal with include:-

 

  • They say I've been speeding, can I challenge this?

 

  • Will I lose my licence?

 

  • Can I get my licence back?

 

  • If I can't drive, how will my family cope?

 

  • I'm a new driver, help!

 

  • What about my job?

 

The best advice for all of us though is to drive carefully in the first place and turn that mobile off.
