Careless Driving Penalties

The maximum penalty for a Careless Driving offence is £5000. The Court must also impose between 3-9 penalty points or a ban from driving, depending on the seriousness of the offence and any aggravating features that might exist.

Defending Careless Driving Allegations

#1 Motoring Solicitors have successfully defended many allegations of driving without due care and attention in the Magistrates Court. We have established that our client’s driving was not below that which is expected of a competent driver and we have also called expert evidence to establish that any road traffic accident was not the fault of our client.

There are many potential defences available to a driver accused of driving without due care and attention. Your Certificate of Motor Insurance may also cover representation by a motoring solicitor.
