Motoring offences

3PB have an array of barristers who specialise in road traffic-related matter and  regularly act for individuals and their insurers in relation to motoring offences. Specialist road traffic solicitors, often in high profile cases, also frequently instruct members of Chambers across England and Wales. In an area of law that is highly technical, complex and often misunderstood, our barristers will provide clear and precise advice, as well as expert and effective representation.

These motoring or driving offences have included:

  • Death by dangerous driving
  • Death by careless driving
  • Drink driving offences and failing to provide evidential specimens
  • Drunk in charge offences
  • Driving whilst under the influence of drugs
  • Dangerous and careless driving
  • Failing to furnish offences
  • Speeding offences
  • Driving without insurance
  • Document Offences
  • Offences contrary to the Construction and Use Regulations
  • Heavy Goods and Passenger Vehicle Licensing
  • Tachograph offences
  • Mobile Phone Offences

Members also provide advice / representation on:

  • Special reasons arguments
  • Exceptional hardship arguments
  • Potential totting-up bans
  • New driver provisions

Advice and representation is also provided in the less well known applications for reductions in disqualification periods prior to the end date (provided certain criteria are met and the disqualification period is for a period in excess of 2 years) and appeals against DVLA stand-alone decisions to revoke a person’s licence.

Our barristers recognise the serious impact that losing a licence will have upon the lifestyle of an individual and as a consequence they are regularly instructed; particularly, in the private defence of individuals and a direct access service is frequently provided. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns, in the strictest confidence.
