Are you facing proceedings for motoring or traffic matters?

The prospect of attending Court for a motoring offence can be daunting, especially if your job depends on a clean driving licence, which is the case for many positions held in the road freight transport industry. If you’ve been ‘endorsed’ in the past and had penalty points put on your driving record, you may also face disqualification from driving. It would therefore be an understatement to say there’s a lot at stake (both personally and perhaps professionally) for drivers facing motoring or traffic offences. If you’ve received a motoring summons to attend Court, we understand it can be a worrying and stressful time, and that’s exactly why it’s important to seek professional legal advice as soon as possible.

Here at Noble Solicitors we have helped many motorists protect their driving licences, whilst our expert team has a wealth of experience helping individuals accused of motoring or traffic offences, including the following situations:

  • Speeding
  • Using a mobile
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving without a licence
  • Careless driving
  • Driving whilst unfit (such as consuming drink or drugs)
  • Dangerous driving
  • Death by dangerous or careless driving
  • Failing to report an accident
  • Fixed Penalty Notices
  • Road rage incidents
  • 12 points – “totting up” bans

The most common motoring offence in the UK is speeding. Yearly recorded speeding offences have increased over the last 10 years from 126,693 offences in 2007 to 176,441 offences in 2017 – a rise of nearly 40%. Vehicle registration and licence offences have also seen steady growth.

What happens if you’re convicted of a motoring offence?

The courts can fine you and ‘endorse’ your driving record with penalty points if you’re convicted of a motoring offence. These endorsements will stay on your driving record for 4 or 11 years, depending on the severity of the offence, whilst you can be disqualified from driving if you have built up 12 or more penalty points within a period of 3 years. If you’re a new driver (within 2 years of passing your test) your licence will be cancelled (revoked) if you get 6 or more points.
