Conviction for careless driving

A conviction for careless driving or driving without due care and attention can threaten your driving licence. Careless driving carries an endorsement of 3 - 9 penalty points or a period of disqualification, together with a fine. 

If convicted of careless driving, the severity of the sentence depends on all the circumstances of the case. Some factors will cause an increase in sentence. These might include:

  • The driver having consumed intoxicating substances such as alcohol
  • Speeds far in excess of the legal limit
  • Aggressive driving
  • Facts which amount to other offences such as driving without insurance or without a licence
  • Previous convictions for road traffic offences

Other facts may encourage a decrease the sentence. These could include:

  • A clean criminal record
  • A clean driving record
  • Age
  • Serious injury caused by the incident

If you would like to speak to a member of our motoring offences team in relation to a careless driving charge call us on 0203 816 9274.
