We have outlined here the most common motoring offences which you may encounter. Please feel free to call us to discuss your own situation. If you are due to appear in a Magistrates’ or Crown Court then feel free to call us.



Drink driving offences are some of the most common motoring offences. You may be charged with driving over the legal limit, being in charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit or indeed you may have been unable or refused to have provided a breath or other sample whilst in custody.

There are a significant number of issues that can arise in drink driving offences. If you plead guilty to drink driving you will generally be disqualified from driving for a period of time unless there are exceptional circumstances that apply. These are issues such as driving in an emergency or a very short distance.

The outcome of cases such as this depends upon the level of reading involved. Generally, less serious cases will attract a fine and a disqualification. More serious cases will attract a community penalty such as community service or a curfew order and a longer period of disqualification. The most serious cases can attract a term of imprisonment.

Offences of failing to provide a breath test are dealt with in a similar way. The main defence to an offence of this type is based on medical reasons such as an inability to blow into the machine. It is also important to check that police procedures were correctly followed.

Offences of being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle occur when a person is behind the wheel of a motor vehicle or close to it and they are over the legal drink drive limit. If a person is in charge of a motor vehicle but had no intention to drive then this can be a defence. This will rely upon expert witness evidence as to when the driver would have been fit to drive.

For more information on any of the above offences or for representation in a Magistrates’ or Crown Court feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.


Cases involving speeding may attract anything from a fixed penalty to a driving disqualification. Not surprisingly, the outcome of the case will largely depend upon the degree of speed involved. Generally speaking, offences of 25-30mph over the speed limit in question can lead to a request to attend Court and a possible driving disqualification. We know how important your driving licence is to you and can attend any hearing and argue in the strongest terms that you should not be deprived of your entitlement to drive. However, before you decide to plead guilty we will check that the officer was acting correctly at the relevant time and that the detection device was used properly.

Cases involving driving without insurance are usually viewed very seriously and can attract a short period of disqualification from driving. The onus is on you as the driver to prove that you were insured. It is not for the prosecution to prove that you were not.

Offences can be made more complicated if there is an employer/employee situation or where someone believed they were insured. It is also an offence to permit someone to use your vehicle without insurance.

These types of case involve a number of different scenarios ranging from driving without due care and attention to causing death by dangerous driving. There are other types of cases in between such as dangerous driving and causing death by careless driving. The less serious types of case are dealt with in Magistrates’ Courts. The more serious cases may be referred to Crown Courts for hearing by a judge and jury.

In general terms, driving without due care and attention occurs when the standard of driving falls below that of a reasonable driver. Examples include minor road traffic collisions. Dangerous driving occurs when the standard of driving falls far below the level of driving expected of a reasonable driver. Examples will include grossly excessive speed, serious accident and police chases. A conviction for this type of offence will lead to a driving disqualification and a re-test at the end of the period of disqualification.In addition to the above offences, the law requires you to stop and exchange details and to report any accident to a police station. If you fail to comply with these obligations, you face being prosecuted for failing to stop after an accident or failing to report the same. For more information on any of the above accident or negligent related offences or for representation in a Magistrates’ or Crown Court please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.

We have outlined above some of the more common offences which may apply to you. However, there are hundreds of offences for which you may have to appear in Court. We cannot cover every single offence here but will be happy to discuss with you any query that you may have or indeed to provide you with representation in a Magistrates’ or Crown Court.



My employer had given me a vehicle to use and I have been told that I am insured to drive the same. It now appears that I am not.

What should I do?

A person who is driving a company vehicle and has been told that they are insured should plead not guilty.

I am facing a disqualification for having twelve or more points on my licence.

Does the Court have to disqualify me?

The Court has a limited discretion not to disqualify you from driving if there is exceptional hardship that arises. This must be exceptional hardship and not merely hardship. You will need to provide evidence to the Court to support your case.
For help with this please feel free to call us.

Are there any circumstances in which the Court has discretion not to impose penalty points or to disqualify me?

There are some very limited circumstances available. The Court will have to hear evidence as to the circumstances and also announce reasons as to why it has decided not to impose points or a disqualification. Examples may include driving in an emergency, driving whilst honestly believing that you were insured and issues such as drinks being laced. If you feel that any of these circumstances may apply to your case then please feel free to give us a call.

I am a new licence holder and am due in Court for speeding. I understand that the Court may revoke my driving licence. Is this true?

The Court cannot revoke your driving licence. Only DVLA at Swansea has this power. They will do so if you attain six penalty points on your driving record within the first two years of driving. The Court will therefore decide how many points to impose for the offence. If this leads to six points or more being on the licence then the licence holder will be written to by DVLA and the licence will be revoked. The Court should not generally impose six points for an offence when they are not considering disqualification for the offence itself as revocation has the same effect as a driving ban in any event. We have assisted many young and newly qualified drivers to retain their entitlement to drive. If you feel that your driving licence is at risk of being revoked then please feel free to contact us.
