What is a Driving Offence?

Our expert driving offence solicitors in Brighton and Hove have experience in defending clients on all forms of driving offences and on both guilty and innocent pleas

Whether you are a new driver or are a veteran of the roads, our driving offence solicitors will look at your specific case and give you objective advice on what you can reasonably expect any outcome to be.

If your rely on the ability to drive for work or to look after loved ones, our driving offence solicitors have years of experience in helping drivers stay on the road legally, or reducing the lengths of any disqualification.

When to Contact a Driving Offence Solicitor

If you receive a notice of intended prosecution from the police and decide to contest this, our driving offence solicitors would always suggest getting advice so you can be in an informed position on whether or not to pursue your planned action.
