View Sentencing Council Guidelines Drink Driving Penalty

If you have been arrested for a drink driving high reading then in addition to receiving a lengthy drink driving ban, you are also at risk of a possible custodial penalty if convicted:

What counts as Drink Driving High Readings?

  • A breath reading of 120µg or above;
  • A blood reading of 276mg or above; or
  • A urine sample of 367mg or above.

The Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Guidelines suggest that the starting point for the penalty to be imposed in cases where the reading is at this level is 12 weeks in prison. However, please note that our Drink Driving Solicitors have NEVER in the history of the firm, had a client sent to prison for a drink driving offence on its own when they pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity. Even when a client was being prosecuted for a repeat offence.**

When you are at risk of prison, we fully understand that you simply cannot afford to take any chances with the way in which your case is prepared. We have devised a fixed fee option to prepare and present your full mitigation in court to give you the best chance of avoiding a custodial penalty.

When should I instruct you to handle my Drink Driving High Readings Case?

We want to explore all possible avenues when it comes to gathering evidence in support of your mitigation so to give yourself the best chance of achieving a lenient penalty, we advise that you instruct us as soon as possible.

We may need to obtain medical evidence in support of your mitigation which will take time. We will also want to fully advise you about what to expect at court and reassure you of our intended strategy. Whilst we can often react to instructions placed with us less than 24 hours before a court hearing, we would much rather get involved weeks or months before a court date.

Pleading guilty to the charge is not your only option, however, and you may prefer to consider possible drink driving defences before you make a decision on what to do next.

Bit of a late review as my case was back in August, however, as many other reviews on here state, these guys are brilliant. I thought 100% I would be losing my licence. As a young man in my 20’s, working in a Big business, driving around the country and keeping my career moving forward was vital for me. From my initial phone call with Saskia all the way to the court date I had emails and phone calls on a regular basis with Saskia who was so helpful, cannot fault her at all, very easy to talk to and professional, explained all possible outcomes but was very reassuring. My barrister (John) was fantastic, really knew what he was doing and in my opinion was running rings around the prosecution team, so much so that the prosecution actually Withdrew the driving with excess alcohol charge whilst at court. As you can imagine, I was very happy with this result and would recommend Geoffrey Miller’s to anybody facing a similar situation. Great prices for a great service. Thank you all so much.

My feedback cannot Express how gratifying I am with Geoffrey Miller solicitors as regards the handling of my drink driving case from start to finish especially Jeanette. What a fantastic experience with fantastic result in my drink driving case.

I got my two drink driving charges dismissed and dropped. Jeanette is fantastic, she is
Very thoughtful, personable and knowledgeable on all aspects of driving offence. Geoffrey Miller uses best barrister. My barrister in my cases was exceptional and his epic performance in the court that got me the result.

It was a long tiring process but the whole team of Geoffrey Miller including Saskia, Victoria Brennan and John Ruane were very helpful.

They are outstanding. Finally I cannot put into words how grateful I am for the help of Geoffrey Miller Solicitors especially Jeanette and my barrister. They are worth every penny and now they are helping to get some court fees back too.

Amazing firm and fantastic result…

From my initial conversation with Jeanette Miller back in July to our last call yesterday, dealing with Geoffrey Miller solicitors has been, dare I say, a pleasure. The last few months have been torture, but placing my future in the hands of GMS was the best decision I could have made. They are ultra professional, honest, diligent and give updates on a regular basis. They dive deeply into the case and highlight the shower that is the CPS. Ellie Taylor has been a shining light when there was not much but darkness. I simply cannot give too much praise. Thank you all at GMS, my appreciation cannot be expressed highly enough.

Honestly – these guys are so worth it !!

These guys are the very best.
My very first call with Jeanette was so reassuring but still, like many, I feared the worse.

However with the amazing prowess of the wonderful Defence Barrister they appointed, the trial today actually resulted in the case being dismissed and all charges dropped !!

It was Marc’s rigorous chasing of the CPS which highlighted their many failures, and my Barristers absolutely epic performance in the court that got me the result I first could only dream of.

Don’t have a doubt, use Geoffrey Miller Solicitors

I had already been sentenced and appealed my case and lost the appeal being represented by a different much cheaper law firm so I thought all was lost, I was banned from driving for 29 months, received 150 hours of unpaid work and a hefty fine. I called Geoffrey Millers after my appeal had been lost and spoke to Jeanette and asked if there was anything that could be done. I was advised going to crown court to appeal was an option but would mean a whole new case. It was very daunting and stressful but the staff reassured me at every stage and were very supportive. They got my ban suspended pending trial so I was able to drive again in the months up to the case going to Crown. The investigation and work put into my case was second to none and I never felt that all my questions and stressed out calls to them were too much bother. I attended crown court and was hoping for a reduced ban but the outcome was amazing, I won my special reasons appeal meaning I could keep my licence and the community order was scrapped. I cannot thank them enough for taking on my case even after I had previously lost an appeal and had used a different solicitors, my only regret was that I did not go to them first. Worth every penny and more. Thank you so much to Jeanette, Diana and all the team.

This was an alleged second Drink Driving conviction within 10 years. I was going through a divorce and my world was completely upside down. I had no car, no home and limited access to my family. It was the worst time of my life. Ellie looked after me the whole time and really was a human towards me and gave me the confidence to keep going leading me to plead Not Guilty. The result was exactly as Ellie anticipated which was great news! My life is now back on track after a gruelling 10 months, I cannot thank Ellie, the team at GMS and my Barrister who was just on another level!

Please call GMS because they are fantastic!

My feedback cannot express how gratifying I am with Geoffrey Miller Solicitors as regards the handling of my drink driving case from start to finish.

I have always held some level of reservation about legal advise particularly with road traffic cases, however GM solicitors have evidently change my skepticism.

The level of professionalism, optimism, efficiency and value for money from the moment I presented my case to Jeanette S. Miller up to the point John Ruane called to inform my case have been discontinued by the CPS was (5 star) excellent.

Jeanette kept reassuring me there was a strong possibility of success even when I felt all hopes were lost. My biggest thank you goes out to John for the high level of transparency and real-time progress update on my case.

Your firm is top notch and I will always relish the good result delivered for the rest of my life. Yes people might say it is an expensive service, however it was worth the result at the end plus the level of payment flexibility makes it affordable for all.

Please keep up the good work and maintain the level of excellent.

Unbelievable!!! I have to confess that I was extremely sceptical about achieving a successful outcome, but was reassured all through the process by some excellent staff at Geoffrey Miller that there was hope where I could see none. Today all charges were dropped by the CPS and I can’t thank John Ruane and my Barrister enough for their outstanding efforts, life can finally get back to some normality after months of stress and I only have Geoffrey Miller to thank for this.

**This excludes cases involving other offences such as dangerous driving and disqualified driving and multiple repeat offences when committed whilst on bail. We have also had one case where a custodial penalty was imposed when a client changed their plea from Not Guilty to Guilty midway through the case in an exceptionally high reading case with multiple aggravating features.
