Dangerous driving

The definition of dangerous driving is driving that is far below the standard of a competent and careful driver. This is the sort of driving where there is a high risk of a collision or other accident taking place, although the prosecution need not prove that there was in fact any such collision.

The penalties for dangerous driving are severe. You face a mandatory disqualification of at least 12 months together with a possible prison term of up to 2 years. Even after the disqualification period you would not have your licence returned until you completed an extended driving test.

Where dangerous driving has caused a death the penalties are even more severe. The disqualification in such cases is for a minimum of 2 years and the prison term can be up to 14 years.

These tough penalties mean that you need tough representation. In many cases there will be witness evidence which you may not agree with.  It is important for you to get the best advice. In addition to our legal skills we regularly instruct expert witnesses who can be of real help in cases like this.
