Motoring Law Defence Solicitors - Manchester
Draycott Browne has a specialist team of solicitors dedicated to providing you with motoring law expertise. We have practised motoring law since 1998, so, should you need our help, you can rest assured you have an experienced and committed team of solicitors behind you.
A car is precious to us all and in many cases invaluable. You do not have to lose your licence just because you have broken the law. In cases where your penalty points are likely to exceed the usual 12 point limit, we can argue special reasons not to endorse or exceptional hardship.
Our motoring law services
Our solicitors are here to help you with all your motoring law needs. We specialise in two types of motoring law:
If you have been caught behind the wheel of a car or found in charge of a vehicle with too much alcohol in your system (more than 35 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath) you will be charged with drink driving.
Regardless of whether the drug is legal or not, driving under the influence of drugs is a criminal offence, as it affects your ability to drive safely.
WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES?
The penalties for driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can vary, depending on the charges against you.
The penalties for drink driving can be anything from a 12 month disqualification up to 14 years’ imprisonment and common drink driving-related offences include:
- Being in charge of a vehicle whilst over the legal limit
- Driving or attempting to drive whilst over the legal limit
- Refusing to provide a specimen
- Death through careless driving whilst over the legal limit
If you are found guilty of driving with an illegal amount of drugs in your system, the courts are authorised to enforce the following penalties:
- A mandatory driving disqualification for at least 12 months
- A fine of up to £5,000
- A maximum six months' imprisonment, leaving you with a criminal record

We are available 24/7
If you or a loved one has been arrested on motoring law charges, you should not hesitate to call us at the earliest possible opportunity. Our solicitors are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ready to assist you at the police station after your arrest.
While at the station, our solicitors will advise you on what to say and liaise with the police on your behalf. It is our job to ensure you are treated fairly and that your rights are respected throughout your time in custody.
Help with legal fees
Arrests can be unexpected, and therefore you may not have the funds to pay for legal help. However, our service, at the police station, is free at the point of delivery, meaning we will provide our services to anyone in need of our help.
