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.

  • I was charged with drink driving and my case looked hopeless. There was witness evidence and forensic evidence. From my first meeting with Abdul he reassured me that we could win the case. Abdul was fantastic and the end result is that I am a happy man as I have kept my driving licence and my job.  Scott McDonald.

  • I was initially somewhat sceptical about keeping my licence, I was stopped for Drink Driving and the costs were high, but the result was excellent, and the money was certainly well spent. I would not hesitate to use DFR again. Michael A.

  • 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.
