With drink driving offences it is important that you get professional advice as soon as possible as your license may be at risk!
Do Not plead guilty without speaking to us first. It is essential to test the police evidence.
Our specialist Drink Driving Solicitors will look into all the elements of your drunk driving offence and build a defense on that basis; but speed is the key so contact us for an consultation as soon as you can, so we can advise you about your drunk driving offence.
Other defences may include:
Special defense, example, it was an emergency or your drink was ‘spiked’
A 12 month disqualification from driving is mandatory if you are convicted of drink driving in England and Wales, however discretion exists for the charge of being ‘drunk in charge of a motor vehicle’ which may be when you are in the car with your keys but not driving.
Where there is a ban we may be able to reduce its length!
Where a ban cannot be avoided we will do all we can to reduce the length of any ban and this may include us advising on mitigation or representing you in court even if you have pleaded guilty.
Remember, you can only avoid a drinking and drive ban if you can defend the allegation, or if you can prove that there were special reasons in relation to the reason why you were driving whilst over the limit.
