    I was handled very well by Michael, I had no idea how any of it was going to run & you did what seemed to me an excellent job of explaining everything and helping me get everything ready for today. Michael was great and put me at ease over the phone and today at court. As he said to me afterwards I got pretty much the best possible outcome from a bad situation. So thanks again to you both.

Our motoring solicitors are experts in road traffic and driving offences and can advise and represent you in a dangerous driving case.

We understand the importance of your driving licence – whether you wish to challenge the charge or reduce the disqualification or punishment, contact us for immediate advice.

Road Traffic Act 1988 Section 2

Dangerous driving is where driving falls far below the standard expected of a reasonable driver and is considered dangerous. The official UK legislation reads:

“A person who drives a mechanically propelled vehicle dangerously on a road or other public place is guilty of an offence”

Examples of this include; driving at a grossly excessive speed, overtaking in an unsafe situation and contravening solid white line systems.

This is different from careless driving, where the prosecution must only prove the driving was below the standard of a reasonable driver.

Dangerous driving disqualification

Dangerous driving normally carries a mandatory disqualification of at least 12 months and a requirement to sit an extended re-test. The Court will also consider punishment up to a £10,000 fine and has the power to impose a custodial sentence of up to two years.

If you are suspected of dangerous driving, you may be arrested or the police may ask you to be interviewed voluntarily. If you face an ‘Interview Under Caution’ or arrest, then you are entitled to FREE legal advice. Our specialists are available 24 hours a day and at short notice.
