Experienced Road Traffic Solicitors

There are three different ways in which the offence of using a mobile phone while driving can be committed, all of which will result in three penalty points and a fine.

  • using a handheld device while driving,
  • causing or permitting the use by the driver, and
  • supervising a provisional licence holder while using a hand-held mobile.

The latter two particularly affect employers who require or permit their staff to use a hand-held mobile while driving and passengers supervising learner drivers.

However, even if you use a hands-free mobile, you can be prosecuted for not being in proper control of the vehicle if the police deem that you were driving poorly – which again carries three penalty points and a fine.

Furthermore, if you are in an accident, mobile phone records can be used to prove you were not paying full attention, resulting in a larger sentence and even possible imprisonment.
