What To Do if You Have Been Accused of a Speeding Offence

If you are alleged to have committed a speeding offence, this can be a stressful time. You may worry about points being added to your license, or your points having totted up and losing your license altogether.

Our team appreciate that losing your driving license could have a substantial impact on numerous aspects of your life, including: your job, your family and your social life. If you want to try and remain in the driving seat you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Free Initial Telephone Options Appointment

We provide a free initial telephone options appointment to see how we can assist in your circumstances. Please call 0330 333 2613 for a no obligation, initial discussion or email and we will call you back.

What do I do if I have been accused of a speeding offence?

If you have not been stopped by the police, for example if you are caught by a speed camera, you will receive a Notice of Intended Prosecution and it is at this stage that you should contact us.

For company cars, the court will expect the business owner to have a system for recording who is driving a vehicle at a particular time. Failure to respond to the request to name the driver of the vehicle could result in points on your licence, or even a ban.

Why do I need a solicitor? 

Many speeding prosecutions go unchallenged, with a vast majority of motorists accepting speeding convictions without seeking the advice of a motoring offence solicitor, or attending Court. Seeking advice from a specialist motoring offence solicitor is a beneficial way to prevent you from receiving unnecessary points on your driving license, or in serious circumstances a driving disqualification.

At Elliot Mather, we have an expert motoring offence team who are dedicated to ensuring our clients receive expert advice at every stage of their matter.
