Transport & Motoring offences

With new innovations in all modes of transport, mistakes and disputes still arise on a daily basis which can cause distruption both personally and commercially.

Our specialist team can advise for both personal and commercial offences disputes.

Individual motoring offences

Losing your licence can have a huge impact on your lifestyle and well-being. This can often lead to loss of your job, relationship difficulties and cause a huge amount of inconvenience both for you and those who rely upon you.

The usual offences are:

  • Failure to identify driver
  • Speeding
  • Failure to identify driver suspected of an offence
  • Drink and drug driving
  • Careless driving including driving whilst using a mobile phone
  • Using and permitting use of a vehicle without insurance
  • Licences
  • Defective vehicles
  • Points and disqualification including advising on any ‘special reasons’ which may apply to your case. A ‘special reason’ is a unique circumstance relevant to your case which may assist in mitigating the offence and reducing the penalty such as an emergency situation.
  • 12 points or more. If you acquire 12 or more penalty points on your licence over a three year period you can be disqualified from driving under the 'totting up' provisions normally resulting in a driving ban of at least six months. In such a case we may be able to argue ‘exceptional hardship’ on your behalf in order to persuade the Court to impose a shorter disqualification.

Some offences (upon conviction) lead to a mandatory ban, whilst others attract penalty points. For some offences like speeding or driving without due care and attention, there are a range of points you could accumulate depending on the situation and any aggravating or mitigating circumstances. Twelve points within three years leads to a minimum 6 month ban unless you can show that you would suffer exceptional hardship.


Commercial Transport offences & disputes

The demand for commercial transportation services has grown inline with new technologies and accessibilty to transport links and delivery of goods. however, disputes and offences committed on a commercial basis tend to be a little more complicated due to frameworks and regulations that commercial busineses have to adhere to in order to protect all parties. The usual offences we see are:

  • Driver’s hours offences
  • Operator’s licence offences
  • Overloading and construction use offences
  • Careless and dangerous driving
  • Contractual disputes
  • Representation at Public Inquiries

If you are an employee or an organistation facing or defending motoring offences that were rightfully or wrongfully given, or have a disute with the another party that needs resolving, our specialist team have significant experience in commercial transport offences.
