Dangerous driving takes many forms

To prove this offence the prosecution must show that the standard of your driving fell far below that which could be expected of a reasonably competent driver and that it would be obvious to the competent driver, that driving in such a manner was dangerous. If the prosecution can prove this, then you can be convicted of dangerous driving.

Dangerous driving takes many forms such as aggressive driving, racing, undertaking and tailgating, driving while very tired and driving a vehicle with serious defects.

What you should know


This is an either way offence and depending on its seriousness it can be heard either at the Magistrates Court or Crown Court.

Magistrates Court – If you are sentenced in the Magistrates Court, you could receive a prison sentence up to 6 months and a fine up £5,000.

Crown Court – The Crown Court has a wider sentencing power which means that they can impose a prison sentence up to 2 years and a fine up £5,000

There is a mandatory disqualification for a minimum period of 12 months upon conviction and you will be ordered to sit the extended re-take test before you can apply for your licence to be re-instated.


  • You may dispute that your driving was below the standard of the careful and competent motorist. Even if successful, this defence may not prevent a conviction for the lesser offence of driving without due care and attention, which is an alternative verdict to dangerous driving
  • You may argue that there was pressure upon you that forced you to drive dangerously, usually fleeing from the threat of violence or an actual assault
  • You may argue that a previously undiscovered mechanical fault caused you to lose control of your vehicle
  • You were taking part in an authorised motoring event.
