Prosecutions

Both Police and DVSA led prosecutions are damaging to a company’s profitability, an operator’s licence and a driver’s vocational licence. JMW’s specialist transport solicitors regularly defend operators and drivers who have these prosecutions brought against them.

Some examples of the alleged offences we have defended are:

  • Operating without an operator’s licence;
  • Falsification of tachograph charts;
  • Drivers hours and tachograph offences;
  • Overloading; and
  • Excise and duty problems

You’ll be aware that as an operator, you have an obligation to notify the Traffic Commissioner’s Office of any relevant conviction within 28 days of being convicted. Once you have notified the Traffic Commissioner’s Office, this can often lead to further regulatory action from the Traffic Commissioner depending on the type of conviction and the seriousness of it.

It is important to get the right representation  at the outset as the majority of the time, the retrospective action from the Traffic Commissioner often impacts the operator and the driver more than the judicial conviction. 

If you or your business are facing a DVSA or police led prosecution for a transport offence get in touch with JMW on 0800 054 2062 for a free initial consultation.
