Speeding Offence Solicitor Representation
At Caddick Davies Solicitors, we specialise in the representation of motorists charged with a range of speeding offences, including both successfully challenging speeding offences and also minimising the penalty or penalties that are imposed. Our solicitors for speeding offences have defended many cases in motoring courts throughout England and Wales with great success, developing a relationship of mutual respect with courts due to our expertise, knowledge and integrity.
As specialist speeding solicitors, we are able to use our unrivalled knowledge of police enforcement technology, ranging from GATSO cameras to in-car police VASCAR systems. This level of specific legal and technical insight provides the best possible representation to those clients who wish to challenge any allegation of speeding made against them. When it comes to building a successful defence, finding expert representation is a key factor.
For those clients who may have made an error and fully accept that they were speeding, our speeding offence solicitors are able to use our extensive knowledge of road traffic law and sentencing to minimise any penalty that might be imposed. This includes arguing for a speed awareness course as an alternative to prosecution, as well as persuading courts not to impose any disqualification or to minimise penalty points.
Speeding offences – potential penalty point (endorsements)
If you’re convicted of a speeding offence then the courts can fine you and ‘endorse’ your driving record with penalty points. Endorsements relating to speeding stay on your driving record for 4 years from the date of the offence.You can be disqualified from driving if you total up 12 or more penalty points within a 3-year period. The rules are different if you are classed as a ‘new driver’, with new driver status applying for 2 years from the date of passing your test.
The table below shows the common speeding offences and how many penalty points you could potentially get for them. If convicted, our speeding offence lawyers will do their best to mitigate on your behalf to ensure that the penalty points you receive are at the lower rather than higher end of the penalty points scale.
A range of legal options
In some cases, as your speeding solicitors we may be able to persuade the court not to impose any penalty points on the grounds of “special reasons” as well as being able to look at avoiding a driving disqualification due to ‘exceptional hardship’ provisions. If our speeding lawyer can show that a licence disqualification would have a majorly detrimental effect on your livelihood and/or family well-being, we can argue against it and seek to find alternative penalties to your “totting up” of penalty points.
We will be able to advise you on the best legal strategy for your situation.
