Consequences of a Drink Driving Repeat Offenders Conviction

drink driving penalty 2017

Drink Driving Penalty

If this is the second time (or more) that you have been arrested for drink driving you already know that the consequences of a drink driving repeat offenders conviction is serious. However, the drink driving laws state that if you are convicted of a second drink driving offence that is alleged to have been committed within a 10 year period from the date of the previous offence, at worst, you are at possible risk of a prison sentence and at best, you will face a minimum 3 year drink driving ban. This length of ban is not the only consequence you need to be aware of. Your ability to get affordable car insurance following a drink driving ban will also be hampered. Our team of drink driving solicitors have negotiated a bespoke deal for convicted drivers.

The length of time that has passed since the previous offence is crucially important when it comes to sentencing and the length of any driving ban as the guidelines state:

The period to be imposed in any individual case will depend on an assessment of all the relevant circumstances, including the length of time since the earlier ban was imposed and the gravity of the current offence.Guidelines

A prison sentence for a repeat drink driving offender is a very real possibility. The maximum prison sentence that can be imposed for a drink driving offence is 6 months. However, please note that our drink driving solicitors have NEVER in the history of the firm, had a client sent to prison for a drink driving offence on its own when they pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity. Even when a client was being prosecuted for a repeat offence.**

Beware of non-expert advice

We frequently hear from clients that other supposed motoring law experts have advised them to plead guilty to a drink driving charge. This is usually because other solicitors do not know the various drink driving defences we have applied in hundreds of our cases. Even solicitors with motoring law expertise but with experience with lesser offences such as speeding, often have no idea how we at Geoffrey Miller Solicitors do what we do.

Our client, Mr Phipps, was facing a life changing minimum 3 year ban if convicted of a borderline second drink driving offence. Thankfully he was acquitted at Hertford Magistrates’ Court on 19 October 2011 and sent an email to Miss Justice herself after his victory:

Without your confidence and assured manner I do not think I would ever have pursued or coped with this matter, as I said to you I was told by a few so called motoring solicitors that defense of drink drive was futile , fortunately I rang you who convinced me that it most definitely is not.I know that on more than occasion I rang in panic only to come off the phone total reassured that I was worrying unnecessarily and that this situation would be resolved in my favour, I have never spoken to people with such belief in what they are doing as yourself, I can not thank you enough.Mr Phipps

Drink Driving Repeat Offenders Defences

The allegation of a repeat drink driving offence is an extremely serious one and could lead to a custodial sentence. Our specialist team of lawyers will review the strength of the prosecution’s case against you and advise you on the merits of your case. There are numerous defence and mitigation strategies we can successfully apply to drink driving charges and we would always recommend you speak to us before making any decisions about what to do next. Take a look at our other drink driving assistance pages. We have formulated very specific drink driving defences for defendants accused of drink driving where samples of blood or urine were taken by the police. Due to the fact that motoring law is all that we do, we have also developed a number of drink driving defence strategies in hospital cases. Our advice often conflicts with other lawyers. If you speak to us you will soon realise how our expertise and experience in this complex field of law is far superior to many other lawyers. This is why we are the first choice of solicitor for many solicitors and barristers accused of a drink driving offence.

We know that many solicitors claim to be able to advise and guide motorists with their expertise but we are proud to prove our expertise by publishing details of our motoring case successes at the end of each calendar year. At the end of 2015 we were able to achieve an overall success rate of 92% of securing NOT GUILTY verdicts in our drink and drug driving cases. For more detail of our trial successes please take a look at our driving defences report.

We are always more than happy to chat things through with potential clients Free of Charge. Call us now on Freephone 0800 1389 123 to speak to one of our specialist motoring offence solicitors. It is only once you decide to instruct us that payment will become necessary and we can often arrange installment plans to assist you. Many satisfied clients have thanked us for offering this free consultation service as it has prevented them from following inaccurate non-expert advice which could have led to them accepting a driving ban or at worst a spell in prison unnecessarily.

My feedback cannot Express how gratifying I am with Geoffrey Miller solicitors as regards the handling of my drink driving case from start to finish especially Jeanette. What a fantastic experience with fantastic result in my drink driving case.

I got my two drink driving charges dismissed and dropped. Jeanette is fantastic, she is
Very thoughtful, personable and knowledgeable on all aspects of driving offence. Geoffrey Miller uses best barrister. My barrister in my cases was exceptional and his epic performance in the court that got me the result.

It was a long tiring process but the whole team of Geoffrey Miller including Saskia, Victoria Brennan and John Ruane were very helpful.

They are outstanding. Finally I cannot put into words how grateful I am for the help of Geoffrey Miller Solicitors especially Jeanette and my barrister. They are worth every penny and now they are helping to get some court fees back too.

Amazing firm and fantastic result…

From my initial conversation with Jeanette Miller back in July to our last call yesterday, dealing with Geoffrey Miller solicitors has been, dare I say, a pleasure. The last few months have been torture, but placing my future in the hands of GMS was the best decision I could have made. They are ultra professional, honest, diligent and give updates on a regular basis. They dive deeply into the case and highlight the shower that is the CPS. Ellie Taylor has been a shining light when there was not much but darkness. I simply cannot give too much praise. Thank you all at GMS, my appreciation cannot be expressed highly enough.

Honestly – these guys are so worth it !!

These guys are the very best.
My very first call with Jeanette was so reassuring but still, like many, I feared the worse.

However with the amazing prowess of the wonderful Defence Barrister they appointed, the trial today actually resulted in the case being dismissed and all charges dropped !!

It was Marc’s rigorous chasing of the CPS which highlighted their many failures, and my Barristers absolutely epic performance in the court that got me the result I first could only dream of.

Don’t have a doubt, use Geoffrey Miller Solicitors

I had already been sentenced and appealed my case and lost the appeal being represented by a different much cheaper law firm so I thought all was lost, I was banned from driving for 29 months, received 150 hours of unpaid work and a hefty fine. I called Geoffrey Millers after my appeal had been lost and spoke to Jeanette and asked if there was anything that could be done. I was advised going to crown court to appeal was an option but would mean a whole new case. It was very daunting and stressful but the staff reassured me at every stage and were very supportive. They got my ban suspended pending trial so I was able to drive again in the months up to the case going to Crown. The investigation and work put into my case was second to none and I never felt that all my questions and stressed out calls to them were too much bother. I attended crown court and was hoping for a reduced ban but the outcome was amazing, I won my special reasons appeal meaning I could keep my licence and the community order was scrapped. I cannot thank them enough for taking on my case even after I had previously lost an appeal and had used a different solicitors, my only regret was that I did not go to them first. Worth every penny and more. Thank you so much to Jeanette, Diana and all the team.

This was an alleged second Drink Driving conviction within 10 years. I was going through a divorce and my world was completely upside down. I had no car, no home and limited access to my family. It was the worst time of my life. Ellie looked after me the whole time and really was a human towards me and gave me the confidence to keep going leading me to plead Not Guilty. The result was exactly as Ellie anticipated which was great news! My life is now back on track after a gruelling 10 months, I cannot thank Ellie, the team at GMS and my Barrister who was just on another level!

Please call GMS because they are fantastic!

My feedback cannot express how gratifying I am with Geoffrey Miller Solicitors as regards the handling of my drink driving case from start to finish.

I have always held some level of reservation about legal advise particularly with road traffic cases, however GM solicitors have evidently change my skepticism.

The level of professionalism, optimism, efficiency and value for money from the moment I presented my case to Jeanette S. Miller up to the point John Ruane called to inform my case have been discontinued by the CPS was (5 star) excellent.

Jeanette kept reassuring me there was a strong possibility of success even when I felt all hopes were lost. My biggest thank you goes out to John for the high level of transparency and real-time progress update on my case.

Your firm is top notch and I will always relish the good result delivered for the rest of my life. Yes people might say it is an expensive service, however it was worth the result at the end plus the level of payment flexibility makes it affordable for all.

Please keep up the good work and maintain the level of excellent.

Unbelievable!!! I have to confess that I was extremely sceptical about achieving a successful outcome, but was reassured all through the process by some excellent staff at Geoffrey Miller that there was hope where I could see none. Today all charges were dropped by the CPS and I can’t thank John Ruane and my Barrister enough for their outstanding efforts, life can finally get back to some normality after months of stress and I only have Geoffrey Miller to thank for this.

You are probably reading this because you are terrified, but you have come to the right place… When I was arrested almost 10 months ago my world fell apart, I didn’t know what to do, I couldn’t sleep and I was in panic mode. I called a friend at work who recommended Geoffrey Miller. After a lot of research and reading all the testimonials (twice) I finally plucked up courage and made the call. Jeannette Miller was the first person I spoke to, her warm and understanding nature without any judgement was something I was not expecting and immediately knew I made the right decision. Ellie Taylor (who is just amazing!!) was assigned my case worker, the expense needed for fees were a worry but the team worked with me throughout so I was never overwhelmed by costs (it is worth it believe me). After months of back and forth and trial dates being moved or adjourned, the CPS doing their best to derail everything, we finally went to trial. My barrister is someone I will never forget, he was just incredible and knew exactly what his plan was, I was so scared of losing my license as it would ruin my job, house and future work prospects… I shouldn’t have worried all those months, I was acquitted. I am truly grateful for the incredible work this team does. Please give them a call as soon as you can, that call could very well change your life.

I cannot put into words how grateful I am for the help Geoffrey Miller have given me. I got caught 7 years ago and then caught again 7 years later, which could have resulted in a 3 year ban (possibly more) and a fine and possibly community service. I run my own business and this had the potential to ruin my business and everything I have. I did a search for specialist solicitors and Geoffrey Millar came up first. I was obvs in a state of distress, but I spoke to Jeanette and she instantly put me at ease by talking through the event of arrest and assuring me that they had confidence to help. Naturally you feel sceptical I think that’s natural, however after the first call they kept in contact and it helped in making the decision to use Geoffrey Miller. I’ll be honest the fees can make you feel its a big risk, but then the success rate is high, so I took the plunge. John Ruane was my case manager and he always kept me informed and told me not to worry. It did take nearly a year to get to a decision (no fault of Geoffrey Miller, that’s just how it worked out) but I kept my licence during this time, which meant I could continue with my life, and I was looked after by some great people on preliminary court hearings and they too, were great! Today I have just been acquitted and case dismissed. Worth every penny, and now they are helping to get some court fees back, which is great! If you Need help, and you feel lost/stressed give these guys a call! and check out the success rate, it worked for me.

Consider what it means to keep a licence and not pay high premiums on insurance after your ban is over, and you will see its worth the cash!

Thank you John, and All the team.
