Avoid A Drink Driving Ban

A drink driving ban is normally considered an automatic penalty for a conviction of driving over the legal limit but, in fact, courts can still show discretion and a case against a ban can be made. In order for a successful argument against a ban to occur, certain legal criteria will first have to be met.

81% Success Rate Drink Driving Trials

We have successfully defended 81% of all drink driving cases we have dealt with, with a combination of our knowledge and expertise and the use of reliable experts in the majority of the cases we have been able to establish that the prosecution cases have been defective evidentially.

Drink Driving Defences

Some of the Drink Driving Defences are listed below, please note that this is not an exhaustive list, but rather just a guide. If you have anything that falls outside this please contact us.

1 Procedure

Just because a Police case looks open and shut, does not always result in a conviction. The CPS are often under pressure to prosecute as many cases as they can, which can result in Mistakes. We have a high success rate in pointing out procedural mistakes, which can render any evidence obtained inadmissible.

The breath test procedure must be conducted in a very precise way, and often the police will make fundamental errors, which will result in the Prosecution offering no evidence.

2 Public Place

If the Police are maintaining that a Road is public simply because the Public has access to it, this does not automatically dictate that it is a Public Road.

The prosecution will have to prove that the Road is public and they often fail to meet this test.

3 Identification

The Police often make the assumption that ID procedures are not required when the defendant has not been found near a vehicle. The Police will often neglect the rules set out in PACE, which will often result in any Identification evidence becoming inadmissible. In Majority of cases no ID evidence, will result in Prosecution offering no Evidence.

4 Reasonable Excuse

This defence will be applicable, if you have been charged with failing to Provide a Sample.

In certain circumstances it can be argued that your failure to provide a sample was reasonable, examples include medical reasons for been unable to provide, Mental Health Issues, Phobias etc.

  • The prospect of losing my licence and summoned to the magistrates court was a devastating experience for myself and my family. Finding DFR Solicitors was the turning point in the process. Putting your trust in someone you have never met before can be daunting, however within our first meeting professionalism, knowledge and confidence shone through. Abdul guided and reassured throughout.

  • I was a heating engineer, and required my licence for work, everything I had worked for was hinging on my ability to drive. I instructed DFR and Mr Ali courteous and professional manner, and his excellence in court ensured that I kept my licence. I would recommend Mr Ali in the first instance for any motoring cases.

  • The service provided by DFR was excellent, I was seriously worried about losing my licence, but Abdul made the whole process easy to understand. I am overjoyed with the result of keeping my licence, Abdul was fantastic in court. I would recommend Abdul and his team to anyone that will listen.

  • I had never been in court previously, and the prospect was terrifying. I was stopped for Drink Driving, and was looking at a significant disqualification. The result in the circumstances was unbelievable, the solicitor was excellent in presenting my case and explaining the extenuating circumstances. I was overjoyed with the final result.

  • From the outset Abdul reassured me, talked me through everything and put my mind at ease that I was in the best possible hands at a time of stress and panic. The process from our initial meeting was seamless and Abdul put plans in place for me to receive the best possible outcome in court with some ground work from myself. I honestly can't thank Abdul enough for his services, although he was there in a professional manner he also showed great understanding of my situation and helped me through a difficult time.

  • You certainly know what you are doing in court, your knowledge, experience and the delicate way in which you handled the magistrates really made the difference. It was my first time in front of a magistrate and it was clear to see that it could so easily have gone either way.

  • I was put in touch with Abdul at DFR solicitors by a colleague. He did not only put me at ease but also was in touch with my wife and explained the process etc. to her. It was not a pleasant experience attending court etc. but it was made easier thanks to Abdul's professionalism, thoroughness and reassurance. Abdul is a specialist in this field - it is all he deals with.
