Fixed penalty notices
For minor road traffic offences, the police have the power to issue fixed penalty notices. There are two types of notice: endorsable, which result in three points on your licence and a £100 fine; and non-endorsable, which requires you to pay a £50 fine. You must pay the penalty issued promptly, otherwise the fine amount could be increased.
If you believe you have been given a fixed penalty notice unfairly, you can appeal the decision before a court. The assistance of a driving lawyer is highly recommended to give you the best chance of arguing your case.
Charged with a motoring offence in Scotland?
If you are accused of having committed a serious motoring offence, your case will be dealt with by the local sheriff court. You can either plead guilty or not guilty. In either case, it is important to seek legal advice to ensure you are clear about the charges against you, the options open to you and how best to defend your position (if you intend to plead not guilty). Our road traffic solicitors will thoroughly examine all the evidence against you and construct a robust defence strategy to protect your licence and livelihood.
