Pricing and service information
We provide a range of services for individuals relating to certain motoring offences (specifically, summary only motoring offences under Part I of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and s89 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984).
On this page, we have set out our typical range of prices for our services and details of what is included.
Our fees will typically start from £2,000+VAT, with an average case taking between 25 and 35 hours to complete. The exact number of hours and cost will depend on the specific circumstances of the case, the charge alleged and the complexity of the evidence involved.
We usually work on an hourly rate basis. Where VAT is applicable, it will be at 20% (at the present time).
We do not offer any conditional fee agreements, damages based agreements or so-called “no win no fee” agreements for this work.
In some cases, we might incur additional costs that are paid to a third party. These can depend on the nature of the case, the location of any hearing and the length and complexity of the hearing. The following are typical examples:
If any of these stages are not required, the fee will be reduced accordingly. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice on some of the stages. This can also be arranged to meet your individual needs.
The majority of our time will be spent on attendance and representation at a single hearing at the Magistrates Court.
A typical case will also require attendance and representation at a single hearing at the Magistrates’ Court.
We cannot provide a timescale of when the hearing will take place as this depends on the court listing for the day. From receipt of summons to conclusion of the matter with a single hearing typically takes between six and eight weeks.
We have two qualified lawyers that support clients on motoring offences. You can find their profiles here.
We advise on a wide range of regulatory matters. You can find further details on our Regulatory page.
