Motoring Offences: Our Fees

 

We are always happy to discuss legal aid as an option to fund your legal representation. However, for motoring offences it is unlikely that you will receive legal aid as they are usually “summary only” offences, heard only in the magistrates’ court. These offences include:

 

Driving a vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit for alcohol

Failing to provide a specimen

Failing to stop after an accident

Failing to report

Careless driving

Speeding

Driving without insurance

Driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence

 

Our hourly rates for representation in motoring offence cases are as follows:

 

Solicitor (8 years PQE)                    £300 + VAT               

Solicitor (4 years PQE)                    £240 + VAT                              

Solicitor (up to 4 years PQE)           £170 + VAT                           

Trainee/Caseworker                       £125 + VAT                         

 

The above rates serve as an indication of our fees. However, for less complex cases we may be able to consider a fixed-fee arrangement. This is on the assumption that the prosecution evidence does not exceed 50 pages. The fixed-fee estimate will be based on one solicitor and one caseworker working on your case and does not include your barrister’s fees or other disbursements, including the instruction experts or translations.

 

Typical fixed-fee arrangements include the following:

  1. Guilty plea with one hearing: £400 + VAT + disbursements (including medical reports)
  2. Guilty plea with more than one hearing: £400 + VAT  for the first hearing, £250 + VAT for each additional hearing + disbursements (including medical reports)
  3. Trial: £2500 + VAT + disbursement costs (including experts, counsel, interpreters, translators, doctors and other  medical practitioners)
