Traffic Offences

Pricing Information Icon

If you are looking for legal support for a traffic offence, our personal solicitors offer excellent advice and representation.

Pricing Information
Typically, a guilty plea at the local magistrates’ court will cost £750 -£1,000 plus VAT and this is largely dependent on waiting time at court.

On a not guilty plea, the costs are more likely to be in the region of £3,000 to £7,500 plus VAT depending on factors such as the number of witnesses and the need for expert evidence such as accident reconstruction experts or engineering evidence.

Whereas a guilty plea will normally be dealt with at the earliest opportunity after a summons is served, within no more than 6 weeks of the summons, a not guilty plea can take 6 to 9 months or more depending on complexity.

Charging Rates

  • An hourly rate range of £205 – £340 plus VAT
  • Fixed fee arrangements are available
