Mobile Phones

Driving whilst using a mobile phone is one of the most common offences to come before the court.

Driving whilst using a mobile phone is one of the most common offences to come before the court. If you have been charged with driving whilst using a mobile phone and want to contest the charge, call us for a free no obligation discussion about your options.  Whether you are looking to defend the case entirely, seeking an alternative charge to which you can plead or pleading guilty with a view to securing the lowest possible sentence and/or disqualification, we can help.

To get in touch with our expert motoring offence solicitors call us or submit an enquiry and we will get back to you at a convenient time for you.  

A mobile telephone or other device is deemed to be handheld if it is actually held or must be held at some point during the course of making or receiving a call or performing any other inter-active communication function. 

The penalty is a fine of £200 and an endorsement of your driving licence with six penalty points.  If you are a newly qualified driver, having passed within the last two years of being caught, the court is entitled to revoke your license entirely.

It is important to get specialist legal advice as soon as possible to give yourself the best chance of success in a mobile telephone case. 

We have successfully defended clients where the defence was:

    1. There was no inter-active communication taking place
    2. The mobile telephone was being held, but not being used
    3. The use of the mobile phone was for an emergency

We are able to provide expert advice, assistance and representation.

We will help you understand:

    1. What defence maybe available to you including, any potential legal issues that might crop up
    2. The minimum sentence that can be passed if you plead guilty.
