Legal representation

Our solicitors regularly appear at court representing operators and drivers facing prosecution, by the police or by DVSA, for the full range of transport offences. These include drivers’ hours offences, operator’s licence offences, overloading and construction and use offences, careless and dangerous driving, and offences arising out of fatal collisions. Our solicitors also have specialist experience of defending large-scale conspiracy cases, for example conspiracy to falsify drivers’ hours records.

Our solicitors also regularly at proceedings before the Traffic Commissioner, including Public Inquiries and Driver Conduct Hearings. Our solicitors assist clients applying for operator’s licences and also those facing regulatory action.
