Dangerous Driving Solicitors
Being Prosecuted for dangerous driving can be extremely frightening and confusing. Your whole life could hang in the balance.

That’s where we can help. Our expert motoring lawyers are specialists in dangerous driving, and will support and guide you through this process, leading you to the best possible result. With our expert dangerous driving solicitors on hand, you could still walk out of this with your licence intact.
Whether you chose to plead guilty or not guilty, with our expert dangerous driving solicitors fighting your corner, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your fate is in the right hands.
Evidence in Dangerous Driving cases
The police must have evidence of the following in order to prosecute you for dangerous driving:
- Your driving fell 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.
If the Prosecution evidence remains unchallenged, and you’re convicted of dangerous driving then you would face a mandatory disqualification of at least 12 months and would have to take an extended re-test once you eventually get back on the roads. Even more concerning is, since this particular offence could go to Crown Court, you face a very real possibility of a prison sentence of up to 2 years.
How our Specialist Dangerous Driving Solicitors can help you:
Given the potentially disastrous consequences of a dangerous driving conviction, it’s essential to get in touch at the earliest opportunity so we can begin gathering evidence to support your defence, or to start preparing mitigation to secure the best possible outcome for you. Either way our fundamental aim is the same- keeping you out of prison and if possible, keeping you on the road.
In some cases, it’s possible to secure an alternative finding of careless driving for which the potential penalties are far less severe. If the charge was reduced to careless driving then you could walk out of Court with merely points on your driving licence rather than an automatic driving ban and possible prison sentence.
Alternatively, you may wish to fight this allegation all the way to secure a NOT GUILTY verdict and clear your name.
Knowing that you are innocent and proving it are sadly sometimes two very difficult things. We know how frustrating this can be. That’s why our specialist dangerous driving solicitors are on hand to investigate the details of the offence against you, find holes in the Prosecution’s evidence and build a strong case to prove your innocence. We are extremely passionate in our belief that no person should be convicted of an offence which they did not commit.
