Harrogate Solicitors helps local drivers faced with a potential driving disqualification following speeding offences. 

Over 40 million people in the UK hold a full driving license according to the DVLA, which is about 75% of the population.

But with thousands of permanent speed cameras, mobile units and police patrols monitoring road speeds, if you're caught speeding frequently or excessively, you could find yourself without your license. 

The minimum penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and 3 penalty points added to your license. 

If you build your points up to 12 within 3 years you could be disqualified from driving.

Speed limits are there for a reason - to keep you and those around you safe. 

But when faced with penalty points that potentially put your ability to carry on working or living family life at risk, is there anything you can do?

Dealt with on a case-by-case basis, the team at No 1 Solicitors in Harrogate have seen plenty of motoring offences and have helped drivers avoid a disqualification, taking points or fines instead.
