Reducing a Drink Drive Ban

Need to get back on the road as soon as possible? Want to reduce a drink drive ban?

We can make a difference.

If you plead guilty the court has to disqualify you. The minimum ban is 12 months, if it is your second within 10 years the minimum is 3 years.

However, they have guidelines on how long they should ban you for. We can persuade the court that your case is different and that they can give a lower disqualification than the guidelines suggest. 

“Your reading was high, 84 in breath. We should disqualify you for a period of 21 months, however after hearing from Mr Williams we are satisfied that your case is unique and for that reason we will give you the lowest ban possible. If you complete the course you will be banned for 9 months. We wish we did not have to ban you but have been told that we have no choice.”(Chairman of the magistrates – Feltham Magistrates Court Oct 2011)

Even if this is your second ban within 10 years we can help, the court do not normally offer you the drink driving rehabilitation course a second time, we will work to persuade them that it is appropriate to offer this course again which will reduce your drink driving ban by 9 months.

We understand that there is always a story behind the case, we work to make sure that the court see you as an individual and not just a number. We know how to best put your case. We believe we are the best in the business and so do others, not just our clients but the prestigious worldwide Legal 500 recommends us a leading firm in the area.

We know the mistakes people make when representing themselves and we see lots of cases dealt with by non specialist drink driving Solicitors where the wrong thing is said. We know that Drink driving is not like criminal matters, you have to approach it differently than you would do a criminal matter, this is a common mistake that a lot of Legal Aid Lawyers make.

If your licence is important to you then it’s important to get specialist representation.
