Driving Otherwise than in Accordance with a Licence

This offence can be committed in a number of different ways and is different from the more serious offence of Driving Whilst Disqualified.

It can catch out learner drivers who are not complying with all the necessary requirements or people driving on foreign licences for too long, as well as the more obvious cases where the driver has never had any kind of licence.

The penalties can vary depending on your situation and it can be critical to ensure your case is being dealt with correctly.

Preparing your case at an early stage can often change the course of things significantly, so call us to get you on the right track.

"Michael Gupwell was exceptionally knowledgeable and professional throughout the case. I can only thank you all for the effort you put into the case and undoubtedly would not hesitate to recommend Michael and your practice to others."

"I contacted Wards solicitors after I was informed I was being charged with a criminal offence that I did not commit. I was put in touch with Maxine, a Criminal Defence specialist. Maxine was professional and kind, she advised me and supported me through every step of the process from our initial meeting, to the eventual trail. Nothing was too much trouble for Maxine and the team at Wards, they were always on hand to answer questions. I will be forever grateful to everyone involved for their professional yet compassionate approach to my case and for securing the result that has given me my life back, thank you all."
