Summary Only Motoring Cases
We are able to help you apply for Legal Aid in motoring cases before the Magistrates Court, but in some motoring cases which can only be dealt with before the Magistrates Court it is unlikely Legal Aid will be granted.
This includes cases such as:
- Driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence
- Having No Insurance
- Failing to Stop/Failing to Report a road traffic accident
- Driving with Excess Alcohol
- Having No MOT
- Driving without Due Care and Attention
Breakdown of Fees for Summary Only Motoring Offences
By law we are required to give you a breakdown of our fees for motoring offences. In some cases we may be able to agree, after discussions and assessment of the case, a fixed fee for our costs which can be discussed at the consultation with a solicitor.
Our private costs for such work is £150 per hour plus vat.
All appointments at our respective offices will be charged at our hourly rates.
Our Current Fixed Fees:
Initial Consultation Fee Appointment with a Solicitor £100 + VAT
Guilty Plea Hearing in the Magistrates Court :
- Northamptonshire Matters – £375 + VAT
- Warwickshire Matters – £450 + VAT
This will be on the basis that a guilty plea is being tendered, that the matter will be dealt with in a single hearing at Court and the Court is located within 30 miles of our nearest office.
If the case for some reason requires a second hearing, i.e. if the case is adjourned for sentence then our private hourly rates of £150 per hour for all additional work required will apply.
If you wish to see if we can agree a fixed fee for your case please ask.
