Driving Offences FAQ
Q. How much does it cost for a motoring solicitor?
A. We offer an affordable fixed fee tailored to your needs. The fee with vary on the amount of work needed and the number of times your case is likely to be heard in Court. For a discussion on the costs to represent you please fill in our enquiry form or call our team today.
Q. What is a Single Justice Procedure Notice?
The Single Justice Procedure is initial step of bringing an alleged offence to Court for prosecution. You will have 21 days to enter a plea online or by writing to the Court. Your plea will be recorded in your absence and the Magistrate will decide if you need to attend Court, either because you plead not guilty or because the court is considering a disqualification. You may be sent a further letter asking if you want to make an argument to avoid a disqualification. You must respond to the letters as you may only be left with an appeal to the Crown Court.
Q. I have been given points in my absence, what can I do?
A. If you were unaware of the Court proceedings, you are eligible to make a Statutory Declaration before a solicitor, or at Court, within 21 days of being made aware. Once accepted it will restart the Court Proceedings. It doesn’t take you back to the point of fixed penalties or a speed awareness course.
An alternative to a Statutory Declaration will be an appeal to the Crown Court. Our team can advise you about your options.
