All our highly trained Solicitors and Barristers ride motorcycles. We provide professional legal advice, finely tuned with biking expertise - We Ride, We Know
In collisions car drivers are generally at fault with the main cause of the accident being simply that the motorcyclist was not seen
Less specialist solicitors will often advise to accept greater responsibility than they should or even that there is no case at all
We will act on a no win, no fee basis, even if your case has been rejected by other solicitors
all White Dalton lawyers are motorcyclists, so they know the risks faced by motorcyclists on the road
You must be disqualified (banned from driving) for certain offences, whereas others are discretionary. For either category, where this would cause exceptional hardship to you or others around you the Court may be persuaded not to disqualify, but you will almost certainly need a lawyer in Court to represent you. The length of any ban will depend on the offence and your driving history. Any ban takes effect immediately, so you have to be there to be banned. Always make other arrangements to get home if a driving ban is likely.
Pack your toothbrush and get a good lawyer. You are given a very clear warning when disqualified and driving on a ban has a maximum fine of £5,000.00 and six months imprisonment. They can extend your ban for as long as the Court sees fit or you can be made to retake your driving test after a period of a ban. The offence will carry a minimum of six penalty points and there is no time limit within which the prosecution has to be brought. It is unusual if you are caught riding whilst disqualified for you not to go to prison.
If you are within the first 2 years of first passing your driving test and you accumulate 6 or more penalty points the DVLA will automatically take your driving licence away. It is not a matter that the court has any discretion on. You will have to retake your test to get your licence back.
No. It is an offence of riding otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Criminal matters are not simple. Before accepting any offence or punishment we recommend you contact our sister organisation Motor Defence Solicitors on 0800 2800 912 or go to their website at www.motordefencesolicitors.co.uk to obtain more information.
