Driving Mobile Phone Offences

The laws that stop you from using a handheld phone when driving are not restricted to mobiles; the police could also stop and charge if they feel you are distracted because of eating or drinking, smoking, using the car radio or reading.

In fact, you don’t even have to be driving to commit this kind of offence – if you use your mobile phone while stopped in traffic, or while you are supervising a learner driver, you can also be charged.

The only time you can use your mobile phone as a driver is when you are properly parked, or in an emergency where parking first is not a safe option.

If you are caught using your mobile phone when driving you will receive a fixed penalty notice awarding you 3 points and a £100 fine. If the case goes to court, that fine could rise to £1000, and you could see a driving ban under the totting up system.

  • 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.
