Unbeatable Legal Advice and Representation

Drink driving carries a mandatory driving disqualification and a financial penalty. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you could even be sent to prison. Disqualifications range from 12 months to three years for a first time offender.

Please don’t feel pressured into pleading guilty. The ‘discount’ for an early guilty plea only applies to the punitive part of the sentence (i.e. the fine). This means you still receive the full disqualification even on a guilty plea! There are a number of different ways to avoid a drink driving ban. These are;

  • Challenging the procedure
  • Raising a defence
  • ‘Special Reasons’
  • Plea bargain
  • Late disclosure of evidence

We’d be happy to explain each defence in more detail and can tell you in minutes if you could avoid a driving ban. Our team of drink driving solicitors regularly win drink driving cases on complex points of law and procedure, often misunderstand by the CPS.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a drink driving solicitor cost?

Solicitors come in all shapes and sizes. Some are ‘cheap and cheerful’ whilst others are more expensive. We’re currently ranked as Number 1 in driving defence on the UK’s most popular review site for solicitors. We don’t claim to be the cheapest. If it’s cheap advice you’re looking for, we’re happy to direct you elsewhere. If it’s specialist advice and representation you need, please get in touch.

Can I avoid a disqualification for drink driving?

Yes. You will only be banned for drink driving if you’re convicted. We avoid convictions on an almost daily basis for our clients by identifying legal loopholes and technicalities (often relating to inaccurately completed paperwork or sloppy policing). The police often assume that a positive alcohol reading will always result in a conviction. This is fundamentally incorrect.

When will a drink driving conviction become spent?

A drink driving conviction becomes spent after 5 years (Rehabilitation of Offenders Act). This means is does not have to be disclosed after that time. However, you will have a criminal conviction for the rest of your life.

How do I defend a drink driving charge?

Defending a drink driving case is easier than you think. A not-guilty plea will force the CPS to disclose the evidence against you within a set time frame. Due to unmanageable caseloads and short staffing, the CPS often fail to disclose evidence in time. When it is served, it’s usually incorrect or incomplete. A mistake like this could get your case dismissed.

What can we help you with?

  • I have been charged with drink driving. What will happen now?

    Don’t panic! We will prepare your case for court, obtain the evidence and explain your options in detail. You may have a defence without realising and could be found not-guilty.

  • I was over the limit in charge of a vehicle. Am I facing a ban?

    Not always. This offence can carry 10 penalty points. We may even be able to defend the charge if you were not going to drive whilst over the legal limit. Please get in touch and we’ll explain the process.

  • I failed to provide a specimen for analysis. What do I do?

    Failing to provide is often treated more seriously than drink driving and can carry an immediate custodial sentence. It’s important to understand the reason why you failed and whether this is a defence.
