Drink driving convictions

What are the consequences?

If convicted of a drunk driving offence you will receive a minimum of a twelve-month ban from driving. You may receive a fine of up to £5000 along with a criminal record and in some cases a community or custodial sentence

Beside the consequences handed down by the court, the knock on effect of a disqualification from driving can be doubly damaging. Your insurance premiums are likely to increase. You may lose your job which in turn will lead to financial difficulties, strained personal and family relationships and finally the social stigma of conviction.
