Sometimes a motoring offence may be minor; other times it could be far more serious with potentially devastating consequences. If you have received a notice of intended prosecution or have been contacted by the police we can advise you on the best course of action to take. It is always best to contact us early as some options, such as driver awareness courses, are not available once a court date has been set. If you have been summonsed to court our solicitors can provide you with information on the likely outcome of your case and, if necessary, defend you in court, especially if you face a driving ban / disqualification.
