Other Offences

New Drivers

If a new driver obtains 6 points on their licence within 2 years their licence will be revoked by the DVLA and they will revert to a provisional licence. This is not a matter for the court system.

Unfit through Drink or Drugs

A person who, when in charge of a vehicle which is on a road or other public place, is unfit to drive through drink or drugs is guilty of an offence.
Penalty: A minimum disqualification period of 12 months is mandatory. Imprisonment can be imposed.

One such case, heard at Glasgow Justice Court, saw the client acquitted after the Crown failed to secure evidence.

Restoration of Driving Licence

A person who is disqualified may apply to the court by which the order was made to remove the disqualification. Having your driving licence restored is subject to a number of factors, not least the duration of the period of disqualification and how much time has already passed since disqualification. The court will also consider the character of the person disqualified, their conduct since being disqualified, the nature of the offence, and any other circumstances of the case

A recent case heard at Glasgow Sheriff Court saw a business man, disqualified for the past two years with one more year to go, have his disqualification removed.

Racing on a Public Road

A person who promotes or takes part in a race or trial of speed between motor vehicles on a public road is guilty of an offence.
Penalty: Obligatory disqualification and a fine.

The Crown tend to prosecute cases such as these under Dangerous Driving, because the penalty is more severe.

We can try to persuade the court that the client was not, in fact, racing.

What can I say, Euan and his staff have been fantastic from start to finish on what has been an extremely stressful period of my life. Extremely professional and another case to add to their name whereby the right verdict was reached when I thought all hope was lost. I can't recommend highly enough and would have no hesitation using Euan again although hopefully not anytime soon. Thanks again guys for providing professional support over the last 2 challenging years.

Having had the misfortune to have been charged with a motoring offence, I was recommended Euan Robertson as a solicitor who would be able to assist. from the moment I spoke with Euan to having my case completely discharged, I found him to be professional, matter of fact and certainly put me at ease whilst I was going through this experience. Could not rate his service high enough.
