Stop and think...

What would you do if your driving licence was taken away from you?

We can help

Our specialist solicitors provide legal advice and representation in every Scottish court where road traffic cases are prosecuted. We are experts in the field of road traffic law, working closely with the country’s leading expert witnesses and may be able to stop the courts from taking your licence away.

We can help if you are charged with any driving offence, including:

  • Speeding
  • Totting up
  • Driving while using a mobile phone
  • Driving without insurance
  • Drink driving or driving while under the influence of drugs
  • Careless driving / dangerous driving
  • Causing death by dangerous / careless driving

There are statutory procedures which must be followed if a road traffic prosecution is to be successful, and the police and Procurator Fiscal do not always get it right. The Road Traffic Act provides for statutory defences so take our advice and find out if any of these are available to you. If you are convicted in court, you could argue that you will suffer exceptional hardship if you lose your licence and there may be special reasons in your case which mean you should not have any points endorsed on your licence at all.

Many people dread the thought of appearing in court, so in many circumstances we deal with your case without you ever being present. We can provide a FREE online consultation right NOW, take instructions from you and provide advice to you in the comfort of your own home. We will clearly set out the costs of advice and representation and always try to let you spread your fees on a monthly basis. In some of the most serious road traffic cases your insurance policy can provide payment towards your solicitor’s costs, and Legal Aid may be available. Talk to our experts and let us find out for you.
