If you drive for your business as a HGV/LGV/PSV driver, taxi driver or employ staff who drive for your company, the potential loss of a licence can be very problematic. Not only could you lose a valued member of staff, but the costs associated with recruiting and training cover can be extremely high and may also employees under immense pressure.

Auriga Advocates offer support not only to individual professional drivers but also to employers by offering them a constant and reliable service for them and their drivers

Want to know more, why not call us to find out how we can help your business save thousands.

As a professional driver your licence is vital to you, without it you will be unable to work and earn a living.

This area of law is highly specialised, complicated and expert advice is vital whether you drive a HGV, PSV or Taxi.

For a professional driver or their employer the penalties following conviction are devastating.

Whether you are in breach of operating licence regulations, tachograph regulations or overloading.

You may be in breach of the operating licence regulations, tachograph regulations, overloading or simply a speeding offence whatever your charge we can help you defend your case.

 

We already have a legal provider for drivers who have accidents?

Many company directors and transport managers think they have adequate legal provision for road traffic offences but the reality is they do not.

Many company drivers facing a motoring offence are often not informed by the company that an offence is on its way to them and as a result they are not offered any advice as to what to do or where to go for legal representation in a criminal court. The first they hear anything is when the police or the court sends them official papers directly to their home address despite the company having received a notice of intended prosecution and a request to provide driver details.

The result is that drivers often represent themselves with devastating consequences or seek advice from non-specialist solicitors with equally poor result.

Imagine the advantage your employee would have if expert legal advice was gained at the point the first notice of intended prosecution was issued to the you as an employer.

We can help set up systems for notifying clients and providing immediate advice even before your employee receives the formal charges.

Is your driver morale low?

Drivers facing a possible loss of livelihood as a result of a motoring offence are often so stressed that they cannot sleep due to the anxiety and often make more mistakes as a result. Failing to ensure that they have the best advice and support throughout their case is failing not only them as their employer but also the business which will suffer losses as a result of no representation or poor representation.

Offering an early legal advice service to your drivers will boost morale, not only for those concerned but ensures other drivers feel supported when facing a motoring offence.

    Mr B, Northants  (June 2016)

  • I felt Auriga’s service from start to finish, was very professional, caring and put my mind at ease. I understood exactly where I stood and how the process of attending court would work and had plenty of time to prepare all relevant paperwork. I would say that I think the cost of your services are lower than most of your peers and I therefore think you are slightly underselling yourselves as I would definitely recommend your company to other people.

    Mr L Devonshire

  • Delighted with the outcome. At every stage of the process I felt in competent and confident hands. A totally professional approach was demonstrated at every stage of the process.
