Products & Services



Despite speeding being the most common of road traffic offences it can be the bane of a motorist’s life. It can mean penalty points that can push you over the edge and into disqualification from driving. It can also cost you a lot of money either in a fine or in higher car insurance premiums.

Obeying the speed limit is important but when you get caught on the wrong side of the limit you need expert help.

Careless / Dangerous Driving

Careless / Dangerous Driving

These offences can range from relatively minor to very serious breaches of road traffic law.

Careless driving can lead to disqualification from driving. Dangerous driving convictions lead to mandatory disqualification aka dangerous driving penalty/ careless driving fine.

Careless or inconsiderate driving or a Section 3 Offence, is where driving is considered to be below the standard expected of a competent and careful driver or to be driving that is inconsiderate.

It can include allegations of following too closely, failing to observe road markings, undertaking, causing a collision with another vehicle or object, or failing to stop in accordance with traffic controls.

Defences available to drivers charged with a Section 3 offence usually turn on the FACTS of the case.

Drink Driving

Drink Driving

Drink Driving has increasingly become a target of the Crown and Police Scotland. Campaigns strategically undertaken by the Police at key points in the calendar have given rise to greater public awareness over recent years. Greater social responsibility has kept the number of offenders down but some still fall foul of the law. Additionally, the law has changed in some important ways, reducing the level of alcohol permitted in the breath, blood or urine of a driver.

Customer Testimonials

Graham is fabulous to work with. Easy and quick communication. His results for my speeding case were far beyond my expectations and I'd recommend his services highly.

Graham helped me with my case, I was due another 3 points for running a red light in the city centre, he sorted my case, excellent service and done in quick time, would highly recommend everyone too use him!

I was immediately impressed when I met Graham Mann at his office , I was charged with dangerous driving, and undertaking at speed. I was looking at up to a 3 year ban , hefty fine and resit on my licence.
He worked tirelessly on my behalf and got a result I still can't believe to this day! I was banned for 6 months and fined. If you are charged with any traffic offence Graham Mann is the only option for you and I'm testimony to that.

Graham still got me a not guilty for a Mobile even tho both police said they seen me on it (they were lying of course) the way Graham handled the case was second to none

I had been driving for 11 months and got charged with no insurance for driving my dads car. My dad told me to get in contact with Mr Mann. His work was fantastic and i got away with no points or a fine. :)

Graham and his team were very helpful from the start and although it was a tricky situation i managed to keep my license, would highly recommend them to anyone!

Would highly recommend Graham Mann, he helped me out in a tricky situation with a speeding charge and got it all sorted for me!
