Driving Whilst Disqualified

It is a serious offence to be found driving on a road when disqualified and often attracts a prison sentence.

In order to be found guilty of such an offence the prosecution must prove that not only was the person driving but also that they were disqualified. If you are accused of a driving whilst disqualified offence and you dispute that you were either driving or disqualified at the time then you should seek immediate legal representation. At Motoring Law Defence our solicitors have a proven track record at finding weaknesses in the prosecution case. Our lawyers are used to defending such cases throughout the South West Magistrates Courts including Bath, Bristol. Chippenham, Swindon, Stroud, Salisbury, Taunton, Weston Super Mare, Yeovil, Cardiff, Newport, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Reading, Winchester, Basingstoke, Oxford, Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Poole and Exeter.  


Causing death by disqualified drivers

This is a serious driving allegation which may be dealt with in either the Magistrates or the Crown Court. It carries the maximum sentence of two years in prison. There is also a mandatory disqualification. If you are accused of such an allegation we would therefore strongly suggest that you contact our specialist team of solicitors.  

The Penalty

The maximum penalty for being found guilty of the driving whilst disqualified offence is 6 months in prison and £5,000. Also the court can disqualify the accused for any period and/or until a driving test is passed. Even if you are found guilty or plead guilty to such a driving whilst disqualified offence our motoring solicitors are experts at putting to the Magistrates mitigating circumstances with the aim of achieving a better sentence.

Legal Aid

In relation to the above allegations Legal Aid may be available to cover the cost of your representation by our solicitors and this is something we can discuss further with you.
