Driving Law

Helping you with all aspects of motoring legal advice

Welcome to the driving-law website. My name is Bruce Stuart and I am the founder of driving-law. I am a practising barrister and have been since 1977. Over the last 43 years I have appeared in every level of court in England and Wales.
I have a particular interest in driving law and set up driving-law to help motorists understand their rights and the law in relation to motoring offences. Drivers are under ever greater pressure from new complicated motoring legislation. Even the most careful driver can find himself/herself being accused of a criminal offence carrying a severe penalty.

Driving-law is an online resource with detailed information and advice for drivers covering all aspects of motoring law. Our free resources can help you find information on most of the common driving offences and our paid for services will give you absolute clarity when it comes to analysing allegations which may lead to a conviction, or providing advice on the most appropriate way in which to mitigate penalties.

Our most popular is the £25 email query. I answer all questions directly and typically within a few hours of receiving them.

I look forward to assisting you.

Bruce Stuart.
