How JMW Can Help Defend Motoring Offence Charges

JMW’s motoring offence solicitors understand how important it is for you to stay on the road and how equally important it is for some drivers to avoid getting penalty points on their licence. For many motorists, the ability to properly manage their work, family and social life is heavily dependent on their ability to drive. A motoring conviction could change your life.

Whether you have actually been accused of committing a motoring offence - such as speeding or drink driving - and are looking for legal representation, or if you need to respond to a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP), our motoring specialists are here for you.

Our motoring offence solicitors will offer you peace of mind no matter the position you find yourself in; whether you are being interviewed in relation to a road traffic accident, are a suspect in relation to a possible criminal motoring allegation or have been charged with committing a motoring offence.

If you don't feel comfortable dealing with the authorities, there's no need to worry - our motoring offence solicitors are renowned throughout England and Wales for our professionalism and our ability to handle difficult situations, seeing them through to a positive result. We also provide police station representation on a 24-hour basis.

We also have unrivalled expertise providing assistance, advice and representation to HGV and PSV operators, their transport managers and professional drivers throughout the logistics and passenger transport sectors.

What Our Clients' Say

FAQs About Driving Offences

How much does driving offence representation cost?

The costs of representation by a solicitor for driving offences vary on the nature of the charge. To get an idea of the costs involved, take a look at our Fixed Fees page. For a more accurate understanding, get in touch with one of our solicitors by calling 0800 804 8159, or complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

How long does the process take?

The beginning depends on the police, who have six months to start the process. It may then be seven or eight months before you actually attend court for your hearing. For guilty pleas, hearings typically last 30 minutes, but for non-guilty pleas, they can last much longer, and this can then depend on the amount of evidence brought forward.

What qualifications does the team hold?

When employing the services of a law firm, it’s important to know that the solicitors you request help from are trustworthy, experienced, and able to effectively help you. 

JMW is recognised by The Legal 500 and has 15 departments ranked, 12 ranked departments, and 33 ranked lawyers in the 2021 Chambers & Partners guide, and has many more credits with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), and other awards from law websites and award institutions. For testimonials, please see what our clients have said in the testimonials section.

What are the key stages in entering a guilty plea?

If you choose to plead guilty you will still have to attend a hearing, and the court will first look into whether you have had any disqualifications. If you have had two or more for a period of 56 days or more, within the last three years, you will receive a mandatory minimum two-year disqualification, which will ultimately result in having to retest before you can drive again.

JMW Solicitors offers a ‘fixed fee’ service designed to assist you in preparing detailed and effective mitigation aimed at persuading the court to exercise leniency when imposing the penalty. Further information regarding ‘fixed fees’ can be found on our Motoring Solicitor fees page.

With our ‘fixed fee’ service, we offer the following:

  • Telephone conference/personal meeting with your solicitor
  • Representation at the hearing by either a partner or an expert motoring law barrister
  • A full pre-hearing briefing with regards to court procedures and what to expect at court
  • A conference with your legal representative on the morning of the hearing
  • A full post-hearing debriefing (to discuss the penalty imposed, the implications and any further options that may be available to you)
