Civil Road Traffic Offences

Driving is an essential part of many people’s personal and working lives. So the prospect of facing penalty points or a potential disqualification can be very daunting.

In the UK speeding remains the most common form of traffic offence and typically drivers will receive between three to six points for speeding and £100 fine.

These points along with others can significantly impact insurance costs and can lead to a driving disqualification under a process known as ‘totting up’.

Under the system if a driver receives 12 penalty points from motoring offences within three years then they could be summoned to court and could be automatically disqualified for six months, while for newly qualified driver a maximum of six points within the first two years of passing could land them in the same situation.

At Birmingham-based solicitors Pearson Rowe we are able to provide expert advice and legal services for a variety of road traffic offences and can help people facing penalty points or a potential driving ban.

These include advice on issues of identity if you are facing a speeding conviction (under the Road Traffic Act 1988 s172) and advice on special exemptions, including cases of exceptional hardship where a person’s business or trade are at risk by disqualification.
