Specialist Drug Driving Solicitors

At Caddick Davies Solicitors, we specialise in the representation of motorists charged with drug-driving offences, including both successfully challenging offences and also minimising the penalty that is imposed. If you have been caught driving after smoking weed then you’ll find this page more relevant for your case.

Being charged with “drug-driving” needn’t mean an automatic conviction. The offence of driving with drugs in excess of the prescribed limit makes it an offence to drive with anything more a very small amount of illegal drugs in the body. Preliminary swab tests can be taken at the roadside for certain substances, like cannabis and cocaine, if an officer suspects that you are under the influence of drugs, while following an arrest, a specimen of blood or urine can also be requested by the police.

The charge of Driving with Excess Drugs in the Blood is a relatively new offence having only been introduced into UK law March 2015 meaning procedures for obtaining and analysing samples of blood for drugs are in their relative infancy and are very often not followed correctly. This uncertainty means, with the right legal representation, a not guilty verdict is often a very real possibility.

We are more than aware that the new offence often means that law-abiding motorists are often unfairly criminalised and those who have used medication entirely legitimately and whose driving is exemplary will find themselves on the wrong end of a charge they probably weren’t even aware existed.

Using our specialist knowledge we’ve secured hundreds of acquittals for the offence of “drug-driving” in recent years, while also priding ourselves that we offer unparalleled levels of support to each and every one of our clients. So, give Caddick Davies a call today and see how we can help you.
