Serious Driving Offences
We’re here to help anyone dealing with a driving penalty, offering advice and professional representation to all. DPP Law has been working with people to get over their driving offences since 1982, so our solicitors understand the psychological, practical and legal impact of bearing any driving offence which is exactly why you should contact DPP Law today.
This area covers both non-serious and serious driving offences, which is classified as “any offence that cannot simply be punished by a fixed penalty”, such as when an offender receives a speeding fine. Therefore, the term covers a range of offences including driving while disqualified, drink driving and causing death by careless or dangerous driving.
Here at DPP, our experienced motoring offence solicitors are experts in handling all types of driving offence cases.
How can DPP Law help?
Our solicitors are well-experienced in helping those accused of driving offences and can help defend you in circumstances such as:
- Totting up points from minor offences such as speeding
- Driving under the influence of drink or drugs
- Driving without insurance, a valid licence or a valid MOT
- Driving whilst disqualified
- Driving without due care and attention (Careless driving)
- Dangerous Driving
What can you expect when you are accused or charged with a driving offence?
Driving offences can range in severity but most commonly involve an on-the-spot fine or a warning if you are deemed to not be in full control of a vehicle, drink-driving or distracted by using a mobile phone.
You can also receive points on your licence that can build up over time. This is called ‘totting up’ and can lead to a more severe penalty overall if you receive more than 12 points, such as a heavy fine or even a driving ban.
For more serious offences such as careless or dangerous driving you may have put other road users at risk, and will therefore face a heavy fine or even prison time.
