Depending on the nature of your motoring offence, you might be looking at something as simple as small fine, or a full-blown court case involving substantial legal costs. For example, if you’ve decided to plead not guilty to a motoring offence charge, your case has the potential to last a while.

Motoring Offence information
New sentencing guidelines from the Magistrates Courts came into effect in April 2017, changing legislation on penalty points, driving bans and other aspects relating to motoring offences. Because of this, seeking the latest information on motoring offences is important in order for you to understand what you’re up against. The landscape of motoring offences is always shifting, so being clued in on the numerous intricacies can go a long way in helping you grasp the potential outcomes of a legal case.
What to do when charged with a Motoring Offence?
In the unfortunate situation of receiving a motoring offence ticket, fine or driving ban, it is essential to remain calm. Knowing what happens in the aftermath of a motoring offence charge is important; first off the prosecution must provide sufficient evidence for a conviction. In the event they prove you did commit a motoring offence, you will be given a date to appear in court. Generally speaking, cases involving motoring offences such as speeding or drink driving will be heard in front of the Magistrates Court, but a dangerous driving charge can be tried in the Crown Court before a jury. Being charged with dangerous driving carries the very real possibility of losing your driving license, a potential nightmare if you use your vehicle for daily travel. You could also be facing jail time, depending on the severity of your dangerous driving charge. If this is the case, you’ll need to seek quality legal representation and our legal loans can help you get just that.
Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988
Every motorist must abide by the laws set out in The Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988. In some cases, motorists can settle out of court by paying the fine, whilst others may require a court hearing in front of either the Magistrates Court or Crown Court. Each road traffic offence carries a different set of penalty points. Once you have received a penalty, these points will remain on your licence for a period of 3-11 years, depending on the type of motoring offence conviction and severity of the case. If you receive the maximum of 12 penalty points within a 3-year period, you will be disqualified from driving. New drivers will be banned if they receive 6 or more penalty points within 2 years of passing their driving test. Motoring offences are on the rise in the UK, thanks in part to the growth in road traffic (growing by 2% last year). As a result, the need for motoring offence lawyers is expanding to meet demand.
