Motoring Offences Fees

Private Fees

All cases start in the Magistrates Court but not all will be funded by Legal Aid.

Most motoring cases are dealt with in the Magistrates Court i.e. Careless Driving, Drink Driving and Drunk in Charge. They will not usually qualify for Legal Aid. The more serious cases such as Dangerous Driving and Death Careless/Dangerous will go to the Crown Court where Legal Aid is likely to be available.

Please feel free to ring us on 0333 5774213 or email us at so that we can discuss any matter that you are concerned about. This could be attendance at a Police Station, post Police Station interview or on receipt of a charge or summons to Court. You will be able to speak to a qualified Solicitor free of charge who will then offer an appointment if it is appropriate.

Guilty pleas at the Magistrates Court other than Drink Driving

If the case is dealt with on the day then the fee is £400 plus VAT. If for any reason following a guilty plea the case has to be adjourned to a further hearing then there would be a further cost of £120 plus VAT.

The first hearing is for you to simply enter a not guilty plea and then the case will be listed for a contested hearing. The cost will be £650 plus VAT for the first half day and then £250 plus VAT for each half day thereafter.

Exceptional Hardship Arguments

If your case is listed to argue exceptional financial hardship i.e. to keep your Driving Licence then our fee is £600 plus VAT.

Drink Driving/Drunk in Charge/Driving whilst under the influence of Drugs

These cases are often dealt with on the day and our fee would be £400 inclusive of VAT.

Please note for all matters that can be dealt with by way of a prison sentence i.e. drink driving/drug driving/dangerous driving then the Duty Solicitor is available at the Magistrates Court free of charge but can only deal with the first hearing.

We can deal with appeals and of course we can deal privately with hearings at the Crown Court but we would need to discuss this with you the cost would depend on the complexity of the case.

To be certain about the cost of your case it is best to ring and speak to one of us so that we can give you a clear account of the work that needs doing and the cost involved.

Debt Recovery Fees - Business to Business

These costs apply only where your claim is a relatively basic debt recovery claim in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed, and enforcement action is not needed. If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed. 

Our fees referred to below depend on the amount of work that we are required to carry out in order to take your initial instructions, and the work and detail required to be carried out to draft your letter of claim; the range of fees is designed to highlight the lowest and highest amount that may be charged.

Anyone wishing to proceed with a claim should note that:

  • The VAT element of our fee cannot be reclaimed from your debtor and in cases where Judgment is obtained on your behalf without the case being defended, there is a limit to the degree of costs to be recovered from the debtor under Part 45 of the Civil Procedure Rules.
  • Interest and applicable compensation sums may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.
  • The costs quoted above are not for matters where enforcement action, such as instructing a bailiff, is needed to collect your debt.

Our fee includes:

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing documentation
  • Undertaking appropriate searches
  • Sending a letter before action
  • Receiving payment and sending the same onto you or, if the debt is not paid, drafting and issuing a claim
  • Where no Acknowledgment of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter Judgement in default or alternatively, applying to court to enter Judgment in the event of an Admission being made by the debtor
  • When Judgment in default in received, writing to the other side to request payment
  • If payment is not received within a specified period of days, providing you with advice on next steps and likely costs

Matters can take anything from 2-16 weeks from receipt of instructions from you to receipt of payment from the other side, depending on whether or not it is necessary to issue a claim. This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly on receipt of a letter of claim, or alternatively, at the upper end of the timescale,upon receipt of a Judgment in default. If enforcement action is needed, the matter will take longer to resolve.

Our No Hidden Costs Conveyancing Quote Policy

If shopping around for conveyancing quotes, you will find that some companies quote what appears to be a low price but leave essential elements out. This makes their price look more attractive.

We never disguise costs in this way; we will always give you an honest and inclusive quote.

When obtaining quotes, always ask for a fully inclusive written quote to enable you to compare like for like. We will always offer you a quote in writing by email or post and we are confident that you will find our overall fees highly competitive.

Some examples of hidden costs to look out for are:

  • Additional fees for leasehold properties (many properties in Rotherham are leasehold)
  • Fees for completing standard forms, for example the Stamp Duty Land Tax form
  • Standard expenses such as the Land Registry fee, which is always payable
  • Charges for dealing with mortgage lenders
