It could well lead to loss of employment and income, affecting your day-to-day life. It may also affect your family life if you are unable to travel easily by car.

Even if you are facing points on your licence and disqualification, by obtaining criminal law advice you can reduce the risk of losing it, and in turn help to minimise the impact on your family and professional life.

How are motoring offence cases funded?

Our exact fees will vary, depending on your specific circumstances. We are able to offer legal aid in select cases.

This fee is subject to the following:

  • We can only offer this service within West Yorkshire. We may be able to offer it elsewhere but this could incur additional costs, which will need to be agreed with us beforehand.
  • The £480 fee is only for attendance at court on the day of the hearing. If a 1 hour office appointment is required prior to the court hearing then the fee will increase to £600 (incl VAT).
  • The above fees do not cover ‘special reasons’ hearings
  • In addition to our fees, you may need to pay disbursements, such as the costs of instructing an expert.
