Death whilst driving unlicensed, disqualified or uninsured

Causing death whilst driving unlicensed, disqualified or uninsured is a serious motoring offence, if dealt with by a Crown Court the maximum sentence is 2 years of imprisonment. If you have been accused of causing death whilst driving unlicensed speak to one of our motoring offence solicitors for free initial advice 24/7 on 0175 321 6399 or complete our online enquiry form.

The level of the sentence imposed will be largely determined by the presence of aggravating features or additional mitigating features. It is therefore imperative that if you are charged with this offence, you seek specialist advice regarding mitigation from a motoring offence expert.

If you are being investigated for this offence, you should seek specialist legal advice as early as possible in order to protect your interests. We can assist you from the very outset of an investigation; accompany you to the police station for interview; and, represent you in Court.

This offence has only recently come into force and already issues have been raised as to what circumstances allow a prosecution to be made. It is therefore essential that you obtain legal representation so that you can ensure you have the best chance of successfully defending the charge.
