Driving without a licence / driving while disqualified


Driving without a licence

Driving without a licence covers a number of different offences from driving with no licence at all to driving a type of vehicle which you are not licenced to drive, for example a large goods vehicle (LGV) or passenger carrying vehicle (PCV).

contact us

The penalties for these types of crimes will vary depending on the seriousness of the offence, but the courts can impose a sentence of 3 to 6 points and a fine of up to 1000. A discretionary driving ban may also be imposed depending on the circumstances.

If you have been charged with driving without a licence, contact us immediately to get advice on your defence from one of our experienced motoring offences solicitors.

Driving while disqualified

Driving while on a ban is a much more serious offence and is an arrestable offence, meaning you will more than likely be taken straight to the police station for processing if caught.

The penalties for driving while disqualified are varied and range from 6 penalty points and a fine of up to 5000, with further disqualification, all the way up to a community service order or imprisonment for up to 6 months.

If you are charged with this offence you should contact us immediately to obtain advice and representation from one of our experienced motoring offences and criminal defence solicitors.

We will help to build your defence and try to show the court evidence of any special reasons which may help to mitigate against the seriousness of the offence and subsequent penalty.
