  2. List of Motoring Offences from The Motoring Law

The majority of motor law is governed by the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 and these two acts are what make it illegal to commit various offences such as drink driving and speeding . There are also lesser known acts such as the Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations which are considered to be a legal minefield due to their scope and almost endless list of amendments over the years. Even the most experienced lawyers can struggle to interpret such regulations.

By comparison to general criminal law however, road traffic legislation is a small part of the bigger picture and is an extremely niche section of law.

If you are charged with any of the following offences we would urge you to contact us to speak to a specialist lawyer as it is likely that a general criminal practitioner will possess only the basic knowledge.


If you find yourself faced with criminal charges your first instinct may be to panic as the consequences of convictions can be severe and far reaching. Even where a minor offences has been committed, the court process can seem archaic, alien and intimidating. At Olliers Motor Law our success rate speaks for itself with a fantastic 93% success rate across all motor law allegations. In some cases, our success rate remains unblemished at a perfect 100% so you can be sure that you are in good hands when you speak with us.

Unlike many firms, we do not believe in restricting access to your lawyer. We want you to feel like you are in fact in the best hands possible and have a lawyer that understands not only the intricacies of your case but also the more personal aspect of how it will affect you regardless of the severity of the offence itself.

When to Contact Us

Different types of case have different procedures in place and there are some instances where we would not recommend instructing a solicitor at all. Our penalty calculators may help you determine the severity of your case and whether or not you need representation.

We would always recommend contacting us as soon as possible if you are charged with any of the following offences:

  1. Offences resulting in a fatality
  2. Dangerous driving
  3. Drink driving
  4. Drug driving
  5. Any case involving a sample of blood or urine (even before you have the results of the analysis)
  6. High speed cases
  7. Failing to provide a specimen
  8. Failing to furnish information

Early advice in these cases can often make a huge difference to the chance of successfully defending yourself so please do not delay if you find yourself facing one of the above allegations. One of the most common scenarios we see is when a person has given a sample of blood or urine and are waiting for the results of the analysis (which can often take weeks) before they contact us.

Acting early could save your licence!

How We Differ from Other Specialist Firms

The number of firms who specialise in this area is ever increasing and choosing the right firm for you can be a difficult choice. We want to take this opportunity to highlight the benefit of instructing Olliers Motor Law:

Client Care is Paramount!

We believe that our client care is second to none and pride ourselves in taking great care of our clients. We often have discussions with clients about exactly what level of client care they want as each person (just like each case) is different. You may be particularly worried about your case and want regular updates irrespective of actual progress or you may be happy to let us get on with things and only update you when required. Regardless of your needs, we endeavour to satisfy them to the best of our ability. We aim to return all calls within 1 hour and where this is not possible, 24 hours maximum. Whilst you will always have a primary point of contact, Olliers Motor Law is a close knit team and we all possess knowledge of each other’s cases. This means that even if your lawyer is not available, there will almost always be another lawyer on hand to assist you.

Our Expertise

With the number of motor law firms increasing we understand that you may question whether one firm is better equipped to deal with your case than another and it is certainly a valid concern. Our lawyers are hugely experienced within this field and it is the only are of law we practice and excel in. We expect  that all firms will tell you this however and in such instance, we would highlight our phenomenal success rates. Many firms who now provide services for motor law allegations will sell themselves as a specialist but it is only by looking at a firms trial success rate can this  be confirmed. It does not take any specialist knowledge to represent you to plead guilty. In fact in any case where a client wants to plead guilty we point this out to them and let them decide whether they wish to continue with us or find a firm who may be more local to them. Winning cases at trial is the best indication of a firms expertise and this is where Olliers Motor Law truly excel; particularly in alcohol related allegations.

Statistics compiled in December 2015 showed that our overall success rate was 93% however in some cases, such as those where a blood or urine sample was taken it was in fact 100%!
