If you are looking for legal support for a traffic offence, our personal solicitors offer excellent advice and representation.
Even a minor traffic offence can disrupt day-to-day life. It can lead to disqualification, impacting your work and home life, or more serious, long-lasting consequences.
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.
