Tachograph Offences

Tachograph offences can be fatal to your vocational licence and your ability to keep driving. Not only can you be fined or even imprisoned, but the Traffic Commissioner can also suspend or revoke your licence. At Cartwright King, we understand that mistakes can be made and that everyone has a right to a fair trial. If you are facing an allegation of committing a tachograph offence, it is in your best interests to get in touch with a knowledgeable, expert transport solicitor as soon as possible.
