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.

It may be that a submission of exceptional hardship is put forward, which will seek to show that the implications of a ban would be unreasonably damaging, such as the loss of employment or impact on the community.

Also, drink driving bans may be contested on the basis of special reasons, such as a spiked drink, driving because of an emergency, or there having been no danger to other road users.

Alternatively, the conditions of the arrest can be challenged as unlawful, or it could be argued that crucial evidence is inadmissible.

Whatever the circumstances of your arrest and charge, if you have tested positively for driving under the influence you will need professional legal expertise to successfully contest a ban.

  • 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.

  • 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.
