Road Traffic & Motoring

At BBNM Law we specialise in road traffic law. If you have been accused of speeding, drink driving, driving without the correct insurance or other motoring offences, and if you are facing a fine, penalty points or disqualification, contact us immediately. We also regularly represent taxi drivers.

John Nixon has been representing clients in road traffic cases for over 40 years. He is one of a diminishing number of solicitors who was practicing when the Road Traffic Acts of 1988 were enacted. He has been heavily involved in road traffic law from the outset. We can guarantee that you will receive sensible and wise advice, whatever the nature of your legal problem.

If you seek either advice and/or representation or both, then you will not receive any nasty surprises about our costs. You will not incur any charges unless and until we make our charges known to you, and until you have agreed the terms and conditions.

If you decide to seek advice from us, you may hear us say that you will not need representation at court. We have to be satisfied that you would actually benefit from legal representation. 

If your case is straightforward, involving a simple guilty plea and a single hearing then our charges are clearly set out on this page.

If your case is more demanding, involving a trial or a special hearing about a contested disqualification, for example, then we would let you have a quotation. Invariably, we shall offer a fixed fee service, so that a client knows the precise sum involved.

You will be dealt with by John Nixon if you wish, or by one of our other trusted and very able solicitors: Sarah Lish and Helen Sabiston. John Nixon is the overall supervisor in charge of The Road Traffic Law department.

Our Charges

For a Consultation 

If you have received a summons requiring you to appear in court, you will almost certainly wish to discuss this with our legal team. We shall examine the case and let you have sufficiently comprehensive advice. This will cover the circumstances of the offence, your plea, the range of disposals available to the court, and the likely outcome.

We shall advise you as to whether representation is necessary.

The cost of the consultation will be £70 plus vat.

For a Single Hearing Case at Teesside Magistrates Court

If you decide that representation at court is justified or needed then our fixed fee for a single hearing case would be £250 plus vat, but this includes the cost of the pre-hearing consultation.

If a case is listed for a morning hearing, but it is not concluded until the afternoon session then an additional fee of £120 plus vat would be charged.

For a Single Hearing Case at a Court out of the Teesside Area

Travel time is charged at £1.75 per mile plus vat.

An overnight stay is charged at £300 plus vat.
