Mobile phone driving offences

What happens when you are charged with a mobile phone offence?

If you have been caught driving while using a phone you may be facing prosecution, a fine or disqualification. We can advise you of the likely consequences and can help you put forward a proper defence.

Mobile phone offence law

Using a mobile phone while in control of a vehicle is an offence under Section 41D of the Road Traffic Act 1988. This carries a maximum penalty up to £1,000 for car drivers or £2,500 for HGV drivers and passenger vehicles carrying over eight passengers. If you are convicted you will also receive three penalty points. The minimum penalty for holding a mobile phone while driving is a £60 fine and three penalty points.
