Driving Charges and Traffic Offences

Have you been charged with driving offences?
We can help you.

If you have been charged with driving offences, we are criminal lawyers who can help you.

Our lawyers understand how important your driving licence is to your life and your work. We will discuss your likely penalty and be very clear about what sentence you might get.

We give practical advice and recommend actions to undertake before Court. This could be you doing a Road Trauma Course prior to appearing in court. This action would allow us to show show that you have thought about what you have done.

If you are pleading not guilty we might use an expert to prove that you were not driving in the way that the Police allege.

If you are facing driving charges you may be seeking information about how to fight them and have questions such as;

  • Can I keep my licence?
    We help you understand the laws about driving charges. How do you minimise the impact to your life and livelihood.
  • If I lose my licence how long will it be taken for?
    Some driving offences have mandatory minimum penalties. An experienced defence lawyer will ensure your penalty is kept to the minimum, without any further time off the road.
