-- Drivers who pay for expert motoring lawyers are successful in avoiding penalties 95% of the time, newly released data reveals. The statistics from Motoring First demonstrate the importance of using specialist lawyers and the imbalance of the legal system for those who cannot afford such representation.
A Motoring First spokesperson said “we offer the British driver annual cover that pays for expert lawyers when charged with an alleged motoring offence via a product called Licence Shield. Out of all our customers whose cases were taken to court, our legal team have successfully won 100% of the time this year”.
Motoring First's independent legal team have handled more than one thousand private cases over the last 3 years. Out of 890 clients that were advised to Challenge a driving ban, 95% (852 clients) avoided the ban. Also, out of 763 clients that were advised to make a not guilty plea, 729 were won (95%). Additionally, of these 729 successful cases, 606 cases were withdrawn without trial by the prosecution (83%).
Licence Shield only covers claims for offences that occur within the period of insurance (1 year) and is subject to the usual T's & C's.
