Road Traffic Offences
We understand. You have been charged with a motoring offence. You have had a look through the charge sheet and the evidence against you, and you are terrified. Losing your licence could have devastating consequences; you could lose your job, which would make you lose your income, which means you cannot pay the mortgage and support your family, and so on.

How we defend driving offence cases
Our first step will be to meet with you to explain the complex issues in jargon-free language and detail our approach to the case.
If you decide the instruct us, we will attend the first hearing and put the court and prosecution on notice of all the defence issues for trial and navigate you through the tricky area of case management. We will then go over and above to make sure that your trial is thoroughly prepared. Read our private client page and testimonials for more information.
How do you prepare for a driving offence case?
What does the preparation involve in these cases? The answer is pretty much anything. We frequently:
- Instruct experts
- Trace witnesses to take statements
- Visit the scene of the alleged incident to take recordings
- Prepare statistical exhibits
- Draft complex legal arguments often involving cases historically, which we can find but you probably will not be able to.
We recognise that road traffic offences require an innovative approach, so we will do whatever we can to ensure that your defence is substantiated at trial.
In the appropriate circumstances, we also make exceptional hardship arguments for those clients who would suffer the most from losing their licence, seeking to persuade the Court that it would be unfair to impose such a disproportionate penalty.
