Testimonials


Being a freelance driver and part time private hire with 9 points already on my licence, getting caught again was the PITS. Thoughts of loosing my job, no cash, and the forever in house moaning, even put into thinking about emigrating !!
, Cumbernauld District Court

Morning, I would like to express my gratitude for the service provided by your company on securing a not guilt verdict for my speeding and 172 charge. From the outset your company put my mind at rest at what was a very stressful time, the case took over 15 months in it's entirety and 3 visits to court. All the way through the proceedings I felt totally at ease I was in good hands. I particularly would like to thank Ms Ferguson who defended me in court, she is very knowledgeable in her field and struck a good rapport with the court and PF alike. I was on nine points at the time of my offence with a potential ban looming, after the court appearance I drove away my license intact, for which I am extremely grateful. Many many thanks RTL and Miss Ferguson in particular.

Questions

Drink Driving

Any person who is driving, attempting to drive, or in charge of a motor vehicle on the road, or in a public place (eg any land that the public have access to), may be required by the police to provide a breath test, to ascertain whether they are over the prescribed limit of alcohol – 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath (or 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood).

Speeding

Many people define speeding  by 5 – 10 mph as merely ‘driving over the limit’ and even view speeding by 10 – 20 mph as ‘acceptable speeding’. Many people consider ‘real speeding’ to be only speeding by more than 20 mph. Most of us speed from time to time however with the profusion of speed cameras on the roads today a large portion of our society is being criminalised. With disqualification risk being so high motorists now demand to know their rights and wish to exercise them.

Newly Qualified Drivers

Your driving licence is automatically revoked if you build up six or more penalty points within two years of passing your first driving test.  This includes any penalty points you had before passing the test, which are still valid. You’ll have to reapply for your driving licence as a learner driver and re-sit your driving test. You are in most jeopardy not just because you lack experience as a driver but because the penalties hit you faster.

Insurance

The courts can order the immediate disqualification of the offender. The serious nature of the offence is reflected in the level of the maximum fine, £5,000, and the automatic endorsement of 6-8 penalty points.  The police also have wide powers to stop vehicles and inspect certificates and the facility to obtain online information regarding your insurance position.

Careless and Dangerous Driving

In England the CPS suggests that the worst cases of using a mobile phone or MP3 player while at the wheel could land drivers with up to two years in prison. Worst cases of death by dangerous driving should be charged with manslaughter, the CPS says. We can expect that the authorities in Scotland will have close regard to our neighbour’s viewpoint and may adopt a similar stance.
