We offer a broad range of Motoring Law Services.
How much will it cost?
Costs will vary depending upon the circumstances of your case but typically the fees will range from £850 and £2,000 + VAT depending on the circumstances and which court the case will be heard and we will discuss this with you when you first come to see us.
Timescales will again depend on the facts of the case and when your case is listed with the court. Typically it will take between 2 and 6 months to complete dependent upon when the case is listed by the court.
You should be aware that legal aid is not generally available for motoring offences, unless they are of the more serious kind.
Recovering costs when you are successful
If you plead and are found not guilty is it possible to recover a proportion of your legal costs. This does not affect people who plead guilty or argue special reasons and exceptional hardship because they could never recover their costs in the first place. If the police make mistakes the Court can make costs orders against the Crown Prosecution Service and/or the Police.
Please note that where a Court appearance is required then the following fees apply to cases being heard in Sussex Magistrates Courts. If your case is not being heard in Sussex then we will discuss with you the additional cost of travel for our advocate to attend. If your case is being heard in the Crown Court we will offer you a fixed fee once we know what the case will entail. These fees do not include any disbursements, such as experts fees, which we will discuss with you if necessary.
