Driving Offences – Why Expert Legal Representation Matters

NGP Driving Lawyers in London have more than 25 years’ experience in representing those facing driving offences in London, the home counties and beyond.

Alongside serious offences such as drink driving and dangerous driving, which can result in lengthy bans and even prison sentences, seemingly trivial transgressions can take you over the threshold of 12 penalty points and lead to a driving ban. This can obviously have serious consequences if you rely on your vehicle for your job or for family and social commitments.

Every case has its own set of unique circumstances and there are many areas of the law which are open to a degree of interpretation. The CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) understandably use their knowledge and experience to present the facts in a way that maximises the possibility of a conviction. Without an expert, defence lawyer - who has specialist knowledge of motoring law - to balance the equation, defendants can be at a huge disadvantage.

This is the nature of the UK’s adversarial legal system and why it is vital that everyone takes up their right to professional representation and achieves the fairest outcome in their case. Even when found guilty of an offence, the resulting sentences can vary depending, for example, on mitigating circumstances surrounding the incident in question. Only with intricate knowledge of complex laws can such mitigations be established and presented in such a way as to impact the outcome of a case.

Those representing themselves (litigants in person) have the odds stacked against them, as do those who rely on legal representation by practitioners without specialist knowledge of UK driving legislation.
