Dangerous Driving Solicitors

MPR Solicitors provided specialist road traffic assistance to motorists for alleged driving offences.

Dangerous Driving offences are serious and can result in a prison sentence and a driving ban. Dangerous driving is where your driving as alleged is said to have fallen far below the standard expected of a competent driver and it would be obvious to a competent driver that the manner of your driving would be dangerous (S 2. Road Traffic Act 1988).

As dangerous driving is a serious offence it can be tried in the Magistrates Court or the Crown Court. A conviction has many consequences including:

  • Driving ban
  • Possible prison sentence
  • Difficulties with your employment
  • Higher insurance premiums in the future
  • A criminal record
  • Extended Driving Licence test

We can provide an initial consultation under out fixed fee arrangements to ascertain whether or not you would have a defence available. If you do not have a defence then we will tell you and advise you how much it would cost to represent you at court if you plead guilty. Alternatively we can write a statement of mitigation for you in order for the court to treat you more leniently.

If you do have a defence available to the dangerous driving offence then we will advise you of our fixed fees in representing you at your trial and take your instructions and those of any defence witnesses to prepare your case for trial.

You may qualify for free representation under Legal Aid and as a Legal Aid provider firm we would be able to do your case under Legal Aid. See our Legal Aid page.

We may need to call expert evidence at your trial and our motoring solicitors have close links with many of the leading experts who provide expertise in motoring related issues.

It is crucial to the outcome of the case to get good advice from the onset from experienced road traffic lawyers.
