Tyler Hoffman's expert driving offence solicitors offer advice and representation for investigations and court proceedings. We work with both members of the public and businesses to secure the best outcomes.

Our team has years of experience in the area of motoring offences and stands ready to assist you. We have successfully helped clients across England and Wales to defend themselves in driving offence cases.

The term ‘motoring offences’ covers many different situations, from the most minor breach of regulations to more serious offences. The maximum penalties can threaten not only a person’s livelihood but also their liberty. Conviction for this type of offence can have a devastating impact not only on the individual but on their family members, friends and business colleagues.

If you have received a court summons or a written requisition, our team can provide you with information on what to expect from your case and, where necessary, arrange to defend you proactively in court. This could be vital, especially in circumstances where conviction will result in a driving disqualification.

The Types of Motoring Offences We Can Help With

Appealing a Driving Ban: If you are facing a driving disqualification, our solicitors can guide you through the appeal process. We will review the circumstances of your ban, advise on the likelihood of a successful appeal, and represent you at the appeal hearing, aiming to get you back on the road.

Drink and Drug Driving: Charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are serious and carry severe penalties. Our team can advise on defence strategies, such as questioning the accuracy of test results or the legality of traffic stops, to protect your licence and your freedom.

Drunk in Charge of a Vehicle: Being in charge of a vehicle while above the legal limit can result in significant penalties. We can help by examining the specifics of your case to argue that there was no intention to drive or identifying other mitigating factors that could lead to a more favourable outcome.

Driving Without a Licence: We will explore all avenues of defence, including cases of administrative oversight or special circumstances, to minimise the impact on your life.

Dangerous Driving: Dangerous driving is a grave offence that carries the threat of potential imprisonment. Our solicitors work to challenge the prosecution's definition of "dangerous" driving, negotiate lesser charges or argue for mitigating circumstances to reduce penalties.

Death by Careless or Dangerous Driving: These are among the most serious motoring offences and often result in lengthy prison sentences, even if the driver makes a guilty plea. Our compassionate and skilled solicitors provide a robust defence and ongoing support through these complex and emotional cases.

Driving Without Insurance: We can assist if you are accused of driving without valid insurance. We will explore defences such as insurance provider errors, and aim to avoid points on your licence or other penalties.

Driving Without Valid MOT: While driving without a valid MOT certificate is often a non-endorsable offence, it can lead to complications. Our team can help, especially if there were mitigating circumstances that led to you being unable to make or arrange your MOT.

Failure to Stop or Report: Failing to stop after an accident or failing to report an accident can carry significant penalties. We can advise on the best course of action, and potential to mitigate penalties by demonstrating your willingness to cooperate or confusion about your legal obligations.

Failure to Produce Documents: If you are charged with failing to produce driving documents, we can help by negotiating with authorities or demonstrating that the failure was not intentional. This often results in reduced fines or penalties.

Failure to Identify Driver (Notice of Intended Prosecution): We are experienced with the complexities surrounding notices of intended prosecution and can advise on responding appropriately, so you can potentially avoid further charges or penalties.

Speeding Offences: Being the most common type of driving offences, our solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with speeding offences, challenging evidence, and arguing for mitigating circumstances to avoid points or disqualification.

Totting Up: Accumulating 12 or more penalty points within three years can lead to disqualification. We can argue on grounds of exceptional hardship to prevent disqualification, focusing on the impact it would have on your life.

Using a Mobile Phone While Driving: With strict penalties for mobile phone use while driving, our team can challenge the prosecution's evidence or argue for mitigating circumstances, and aim to protect your driving privileges.

FAQs For Our Driving Offence Solicitors

How much is a solicitor for a driving offence?

The cost of a motoring offence solicitor varies. Due to the wide range of factors that can affect your claim, we do not offer our services on a fixed fee, nor do we operate on an hourly rate. This means a quick and simple case will cost you less, but a longer, more complex one could cost more. For more information about our fees, visit our fees page, or contact us today for a bespoke assessment of your circumstances.

Do I need a solicitor for a driving offence?

There is no requirement by law to hire the services of a solicitor for a motoring offence. However, you should not attempt to navigate this process by yourself, regardless of the severity of the charge. Driving offences are highly complex, and a solicitor specialising in motoring offences can provide expert advice on how to proceed, represent you in court, negotiate on your behalf, and potentially mitigate the consequences of the offence. Our team's understanding of motoring law and the legal system will be invaluable in protecting your driving licence and ensuring the best possible outcome.

Is a motoring offence a criminal offence?

Most motoring offences are classified as criminal offences in the UK. This includes both summary offences, such as speeding or using a mobile phone while driving, which are dealt with in a Magistrates' Court, and more serious indictable offences, such as dangerous driving or causing death by careless driving, which may be heard in a Crown Court. Being convicted of a criminal motoring offence can lead to a criminal record, in addition to other penalties such as fines, driving disqualifications and, in some cases, imprisonment.

Can you help me if I plan to make a guilty plea?

Even if you intend to plead guilty to a motoring offence, legal representation is crucial. A solicitor can advise on the implications of your plea, help you to prepare a mitigation statement to present to the court, and argue for the lowest possible penalty. In many cases, effective legal representation can significantly reduce the severity of the consequences. For example, a solicitor may help in reducing fines, avoiding disqualification, or securing a more lenient sentence by presenting mitigating circumstances or demonstrating your remorse and commitment to safe driving in the future. Engaging a solicitor ensures that you fully understand your options and the potential outcomes before making a guilty plea.
