There any many things you need to consider if you own a road haulage business or if you are a sole trader driving a Heavy or Large Goods Vehicle (HGV or LGV). If you or one of your employees are facing any offences relating to road haulage, it is vital that you obtain specialist legal advice and that you do it as soon as possible. Acting as quickly as possible can sometimes improve the outcome.
Contact our specialist motoring team, covering Newcastle and Sunderland.

What types of driving offences are there?

Some of the road haulage offences you may be facing are:

  • Overloading
  • Insecure loads
  • Operator licence offences
  • Dangerous vehicles
  • LGV driving offences, such as no CPC licence
  • Excise and fuel duty offences
  • Insurance issues
  • Tachograph tampering offences
  • Failure to fit tachograph

If you are facing any of the above offences or for any other haulage issues you should contact us today.

What possible defences are available to me?

There may be circumstances in which we can argue certain defences on your behalf to try to reduce the penalty for any of the offences you are facing. We can help you to present these defences or mitigating circumstances if you seek early advice. For example, if you move from being a sole trader to a limited company and you fail to obtain a new operator licence you may face quite serious penalties. We can help you to try to reduce the penalty you will face by reviewing all the circumstances in detail and offering clear advice early on.

“It was very assuring to see you at court and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I was impressed with your delivery of the details and this proved to be successful. I have been very anxious since the date of the offence and worried about the effect that this would have on everyone. Not least of which is the everyday school run to deliver and collect our 5yr old granddaughter from school".

"You have given me confidence in using your services in the future - NOT for motoring problems as I will be extra vigilant but for any other problems. I can only thank you for your help. I will be forever grateful".
