Motoring and Driving Offences Solicitors
Even the most careful of drivers can find themselves in trouble with the law at some point in their life. From minor speeding offences to the most serious offences, such as causing death by dangerous driving, you could face hefty fines, a driving ban or even a prison sentence if found responsible.
The advice and support of a specialist driving offence solicitor can mean the difference between a harsh punishment and an acquittal or slap on the wrist. At Whiskers Solicitors, our expert team of lawyers has over 40 years of experience representing clients in both Magistrates and Crown Courts in relation to a wide variety of motoring offences, including:
- Drink driving or driving under the influence of drugs
- Parking tickets and fines
- Driving without a licence, insurance or MOT
- Using a mobile phone while driving
- Careless driving / driving without due care and attention
- Dangerous driving
- Causing injury by driving dangerously or when disqualified
- Causing death by dangerous driving
- Causing death by careless driving
We will advise you on how best to keep your licence, or to reduce the length of a ban wherever possible. We strongly believe that every individual deserves expert legal advice and our priority is to promote your rights and defend your liberty to the very best of our ability. We are members of the Law Society Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme for our skills and expertise in successfully representing clients at the police station and in court.
We can offer competitive rates including fixed fees for a single case hearing. Your home insurance may cover your legal costs and this is something that we can discuss.

If you are worried about being arrested or invited to a police interview under caution for a driving offence, get in touch with us as soon as possible as anything you say could be used as evidence against you. You are entitled to free legal advice while you are at the police station. Do not answer any police questions until you have one of our lawyers by your side.
Why choose our driving offence solicitors?
We realise how important your driving licence is to you, your family and your job. As well as the impact of fines and a possible custodial sentence, being banned from driving could have years of consequences, including higher insurance premiums and difficulties getting employment requiring a full driving licence. This is not to mention the everyday challenges such as taking the children to and from school or travelling to visit relatives.
For these reasons, you need a solicitor who truly understands your individual situation, the circumstances which led to the offence, and who has the legal knowledge to defend your case with strength and compassion. Below are just some of the reasons to choose our driving offence solicitors:
Expert advice with a personal touch
With extensive experience defending against all types of road traffic offence, we have witnessed first-hand the stress these kinds of proceedings can cause. We will do our level best to take as much weight off your shoulders as possible. Our friendly and approachable team will explain clearly how the proceedings will work and how we are going to challenge them. We will argue vigorously against conviction and raise all possible reasons against disqualification, including where there is a case for Exceptional Hardship or Special Reasons.
By your side every step of the way
We can provide advice and support at all stages of the criminal justice system, from the moment you receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP), are arrested or invited to the police station for interview, to the moment you appear in court.
Whatever stage you are at, do not be afraid to give us a call to discuss your case. This includes if you have already had some legal representation but you are not happy and want to switch lawyers.
Amongst our talented and dedicated team, one of our Partners, Andrew Clowser is a member of the Law Society Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme.
