Drink Driving Offences
Being charged with a drink driving offence is a serious matter. The consequences of being convicted of an offence can have lasting effects depending upon the offence. A conviction is likely to affect you job, business or family life.
Although cases are often dealt with by a financial penalty, convictions can result in prison sentences. A minimum 12 month driving ban can only be avoided in a narrow range of circumstances. If a conviction is a second offence within 10 years of the first then the minimum driving disqualification will be 3 years.
A conviction for excess alcohol or similar offence will stay on your driving licence for 10 years.
Our expert drink driving solicitors regularly defend those charged with:
- Driving with excess alcohol
- Drunk in charge
- Failing to provide a specimen for analysis
- High risk offenders
