Road Traffic Solicitors Fees – Motoring Offences

The price information is a general indication of costs for motoring matters, dealt with in the Magistrates Court, based upon our experience.

We estimate that a fixed fee for a guilty plea will range from £250 - £500 exclusive of VAT.

The fee will depend upon the nature and complexity of your case. What will be included in (and excluded from) that fee is set out below.

Fee includes:

  • 2 hours attendance/preparation:
    • considering evidence
    • taking your instructions either at the office or court
    • providing advice on likely sentence
  • Attendance and representation at a single hearing at the Magistrates Court

The fee does not include:

  • any trial and preparation for trial
  • instruction of any expert witnesses
  • taking statements from any witnesses
  • advice and assistance in relation to a special reasons hearing
  • advice and assistance in relation to an exceptional hardship hearing
  • any additional hearings
  • any travel time and disbursements in attending court (eg travel, accommodation)
  • advice and / or assistance in relation to any potential appeal

The key stages of your matter are based on the presumption that you have entered a guilty plea and have a date for your hearing.

  • Meet with your solicitor to provide instructions on what happened.
  • We will consider initial disclosure, any other evidence and provide advice.
  • We will explain the court procedure to you so you know what to expect on the day of your hearing, and the sentencing options available to the court.
  • We cannot provide a timescale of when your hearing will take place, as this depends on the court listing for that day.
  • We will attend court on the day and represent you. We anticipate being at court for up to half a day.
  • We will discuss the outcome with you. If advice is required on appeal, this will carry an additional cost.
