Pump Court

Road Traffic

Our barristers provide a comprehensive service encompassing all of the areas of road traffic law.

Specialist road traffic solicitors, often in high profile cases, frequently instruct members of Chambers across England and Wales. In an area of law that is highly technical, complex and often misunderstood, our barristers will provide clear and precise advice, as well as expert and effective representation.

To that extent members of Chambers are often instructed by large commercial firms / organisations for the specialist advice and advocacy they provide. A direct access service can also be provided in appropriate cases.

Members of Chambers have appeared in road traffic law cases at the highest levels, including in the Divisional Court, Court of Appeal, House of Lords (as then was) and the Supreme Court”.

Members provide advice and/or representation in all areas of road traffic law including:

  • Death by dangerous driving
  • Death by careless driving
  • Drink driving offences and failing to provide evidential specimens
  • Drunk in charge offences
  • Driving whilst under the influence of drugs
  • Dangerous and careless driving
  • Failing to furnish offences
  • Speeding offences
  • Driving without insurance
  • Document offences
  • Offences contrary to the construction and use regulations
  • Heavy goods and passenger vehicle licensing
  • Tachograph offences
  • Mobile phone offences

Members also provide advice / representation on:

  • Special reasons arguments
  • Exceptional hardship arguments
  • Potential totting-up bans
  • New driver provisions

Advice and representation is also provided in the less well known applications for reductions in disqualification periods prior to the end date (provided certain criteria are met and the disqualification period is for a period in excess of 2 years) and appeals against DVLA stand-alone decisions to revoke a person’s licence.
