You may be charged with a Mobile Phone Offence if it is deemed you have failed to be in proper control of your vehicle or have a full view of the road and traffic ahead of you while driving due to the use of a mobile phone. In serious cases, the police may consider that the appropriate charge is careless or Dangerous Driving.

Frequently Asked Questions
We can help every step of the way.
We spend every day in court proving that misconception to be entirely false. Police witnesses are trained in giving evidence, and regularly appear at court giving evidence. As such, you can expect that the standard of evidence given by police officers will be much higher than most civilian witnesses. Notably however, police receive no special status in court, and like civilian witnesses, they too can get it wrong. This is where the benefits of choosing a Specialist Road Traffic Lawyer come into play. Our solicitors are adept at cross-examining experienced Police witnesses and derailing the Crown case against you.
This offence is covered by section 41D of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and regulation 110(1) of the Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations 1986. The provisions themselves are lengthy but generally to be guilty of such offences you must be:
- USING a hand-held mobile phone or hand-held device which is capable of transmitting or receiving data whilst driving;
- Driving a motor vehicle in a position that does not give proper control or a full view of the road and traffic ahead.
- Six penalty points.
- £200 fine (up to £450 if driving a truck/lorry or up to £1,000 if court imposed).
- Discretionary disqualification.
What appears to be a simple and straightforward offence can be extremely complicated when applying the law. It is of the upmost importance if you are prosecuted for driving while using a mobile phone that you contact our specialist Road Traffic Lawyers who know the law.
Keeping you driving
I contacted Scullion LAW after being charged with some serious road traffic offences. At the first court date it turned out it was more serious than I thought! Without their expertise, guidance and reassurance who knows what the outcome may have been.
I was falsely accused of a driving offence which was an extremely worrying time. Extremely friendly but exceptionally thorough from start to finish and the level of professionalism from start to finish was excellent. After this successful defence and a NOT GUILTY verdict I would recommend.
Scullion LAW kept me posted from my 1st phone call to the very end result. Guided me through each stage of the process & I felt that I could ask them any question & was made to feel at ease. Great advice…got me the best possible outcome. Would highly recommend!

Sincerely grateful to Nicholas Scullion and Kris Buchanan for representing me in court. With 30 years+ driving experience pleading Not Guilty to a motoring offence and having to go through the trial diets, at court, in person, was a first for me… No hesitation in recommending Scullion LAW.
