Why we do what we do:
At Ashworth motoring law we are dedicated to keeping drivers on the road. We believe that no driver’s licence should be placed in jeopardy due to a lack of legal or technical skill and knowledge. In many cases, drivers with no Courtroom experience or legal skill and knowledge are left to fend for themselves in Court, with their whole lives hanging in the balance. We don’t think that’s right. We’re here to tip the balance at Court in your favour by giving you the best, specialised legal representation in England and Wales.
We know the devastating impact that a disqualification from driving could have on a person’s life, career and family. It’s from that understanding that we fight to save the driving licences of motorists throughout the Country, to ensure that no person is disqualified where a valid defence or judicial discretion is available.
If you want to speak to someone who’s as passionate about saving your licence as you are, call our 24/7 helpline on 0330 33 22 770 or email email@example.com.
