Most people already realise that drink driving attracts a year long disqualification yet when asked about the other penalties they may face people often come up stuck. Police officers around the country frequently tell motorists that they will not face anything longer than a 12 month ban yet this is (unfortunately) not accurate information.
Depending upon the circumstances, these offences can attract disqualifications of anywhere between 12 months and FIVE years and, in the more serious offences a prison sentence! You may also be ordered to pay a fine of up to £5000!
Our calculator below should give you an idea of the penalty you are facing but we would urge you to contact us if you have been charged with such an offence as there are other options available than pleading guilty.
