Motoring & Driving Offences

Why Choose Southerns / Our fees:

Professional Fees:

You may be eligible for Legal Aid and this can be explored fully with you having regard to all the circumstances.

If you are not eligible for Legal Aid, we will discuss our costs with you and in some cases we will be able to offer a fixed fee – subject to an initial assessment of your case taking into account issues of complexity and plea.

Fixed Fees:

If your case is suitable for a fixed fee, our fixed fees for summary only motoring offences are as follows:

Attendance at a single hearing to deal with a guilty plea and mitigation

£250 – £750 plus VAT at 20%.

Exceptional Hardship Argument

£500 – £1,250 plus VAT at 20%.

The fee will depend on location of the court and the complexity of your case.

If we have represented you at the first hearing on a fixed fee basis and your case is then adjourned to another date or for a trial then our normal hourly rate would then apply subsequently.

Examples of summary only offences are as follows:

  • Driving a vehicle whilst over the prescribed limit for alcohol
  • Failing to provide a specimen
  • Failing to stop after an accident
  • Careless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence

However, on occasions, for a relatively straight forward matter, a fixed costs package may be agreed.

Disbursements:

Disbursements are the costs payable to the third parties such as experts.  Occasionally we may seek to instruct an expert report and costs of any disbursements in respect of this will be in addition to the above.

Expert reports for motoring offences may typically costs in the region of £500 – £1,500 plus VAT at 20%.

Hourly Rates:

Where a case is dealt with by reference to our hourly rates, the following are applied:

  • Grade A (Solicitor with 8 years post qualification experience)       £201.00
  • Grade B (Solicitor with 4 years post qualification experience)       £177.00
  • Grade C (Solicitor with less than 4 years post qualification experience/Legal Executives)       £146.00
  • Grade D (Trainee/Paralegals)       £111.00

Plus VAT at 20% on each of the above.

Preparation, attendance, advocacy, travelling and waiting are all charged per hour or part thereof. Letters out and telephone calls are all charged per item.

In the event that you are successful and awarded a Defendants Costs Order, you will only have to pay the difference between the costs submitted at the above hourly charging rates and the amount subsequently paid by central funds following consideration of any Defendants Costs Order.
