Driving Offences and Exceptional Hardship

MVLLP’s solicitors are very experienced in defending clients for all types of driving offences.

We are specialists in providing first-class, good-value legal advice and representation to those accused or found guilty of road traffic offences.

Can I really mount a defence against a motoring charge?

Many people don’t realise that if they receive a penalty notice or are accused of a driving offence, they can plead not guilty or appeal. The police may have followed incorrect procedures when dealing with you at the roadside or in the police station, for example, and a defence can be mounted on such grounds.

Or special reasons, also known as mitigating circumstances, might be provided to reduce, or have withdrawn, a penalty that has been imposed by a court.

Whatever the circumstances, we take a close look at your case and will advise you if such an approach is the right one to take.

Exceptional hardship defence

If you’re facing disqualification from driving, under exceptional circumstances it may be possible to plead that any ban would cause ‘exceptional hardship’ to you or someone else.

This might be if you have a partner or family member who relies on you for mobility due to health or mobility issues, or if there would be an impact on employees if you were a business owner.
