I was so impressed with the professional manner in which I was treated.Every part of the legal process was fully explained to me.I was given a clear indication of the parameters we were working within.Most importantly I felt things were in hand and this helped calm what was a highly anxious situation.Most importantly I was fully prepared for my case.
, Glasgow Justice of the Peace

I was wrongly accused of dangerous driving and not understanding the consequences of it, I had pleaded quilty for the charge. When I realised the seriousness of the charge I contacted Graham at Roadtrafficlaw.com. Their personal touch and attention impressed me from the beginning. All my emails were replied promptly and I felt I was in good hands. Not only did they help me to get the plea changed but I was very impressed how Kirsty Ferguson managed to negotiate a reduced guilty plea to careless driving. These guys not only have the contacts but also the level of relationships which ensure that my case was properly heard behind the scenes. I was obviously hoping to have the whole case dismissed but I'd suppose miracles don't often happen. I was very impressed on Kirsty's meticulous preparation before the the court hearing and even more so how she conducted my case at the front of the sheriff. It was a real pleasure to observe a true professional at work. Thanks to her and the Roadtrafficlaw team, I am able to continue working as self employed management consultant. I cannot do my work without being able to drive. I am happy with the outcome and sincerely recommend these guys to help you if you are facing the wrong end of the bargain. They are true professionals and know their business. Many thanks, indeed

Short Term Disqualifications

Always ask a lawyer if you need more inforamtion about Short Term Bans or Short term disqualification if you are unsure about any of the information contained in the site just call us or use the online advice forms.


Short term disqualifications or short term bans are really under utilised in Scotland. There are often good reasons to ask a court to disqualify rather than impose penalty points. Simply consider that if you have points and you consider the risk of re offending is significant then you might want the option of asking the court to ban for a short term on this particular occasion. In cases where the points are taken into consideration in the Totting Up process this will have the effect of wiping the slate clean when your licence is returned to you. Attractive particularly for those who may work abroad or travel abroad for some time each year. The plea can be tendered at the appropriate time and lower the impact of the driving ban on your day to day life.

If you were disqualified for less than 56 days, the court will stamp your licence and give it back to you. The stamp will tell you how long you are disqualified for. You do not need to renew your licence when the short period disqualification ends. Your licence becomes valid again the day after the expiry of the disqualification.
