Drug Driving Offences

It is a criminal offence to drive whilst unfit through use of drugs (DR80), and the law reflects how much driving is impaired when a motorist is under the influence.

It is important to realise that the law does not distinguish between legal drugs, medicines and illegal drugs.

Penalties for drug driving are the same as those for drink driving, including:

  • A criminal record
  • A minimum 12 month driving ban
  • A fine of up to £5,000
  • A potential prison sentence

The specialist legal professionals at Lanyon Bowdler will work closely with you to help you build the strongest possible defence, carefully looking at the prosecution's case and using the necessary expertise throughout the process to help improve the result for you.
