Drink Driving Solicitor – What will happen at your first court hearing

Conor Johnstone
31 August 2016

What will happen at your first court hearing?

This free booklet outlines the process at your first drink driving court hearing. It discusses the benefits of instructing a specialist solicitor to safeguard your position.

If you have been charged with drink driving, drug driving or failing to provide a specimen, you will probably be bailed to attend a first court hearing. The primary purpose of this hearing is to enter a plea (i.e. guilty or not-guilty). You should also have the opportunity to consider the evidence against you on this date (if it exists). There are a number of reasons why you should not attend the first court hearing alone. These reasons (and other useful tips) are covered in our most recent free booklet.
