Driving Whilst Disqualified
If you have been disqualified from driving it is an offence to drive a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place. These matters are treated very seriously by the court as, by nature, driving while disqualified involves breaching an order of the court, namely that you do not drive for a specified period.
The penalties for disqualified driving depend of the level of prosecution. On indictment in Scotland you can face up to 12 months imprisonment, or a fine, or both. At summary level the maximum prison sentence is 6 months and a fine can also be imposed as an alternative, or in addition to, any prison sentence. We can assist in the preparation and presentation of a number of defences to such charges.
