What is driving whilst using a mobile phone?

A mobile telephone or other device is deemed to be handheld if it is actually held or must be held at some point during the course of making or receiving a call or performing any other interactive communication function. 

Sentencing

The penalty is a fine of £200 and an endorsement of your driving licence with six penalty points.  If you are a newly qualified driver, having passed within the last two years of being caught, the court is entitled to revoke your license entirely.

Defending the case

It is important to get specialist legal advice as soon as possible to give yourself the best chance of success in a mobile telephone case.

  • There was no interactive communication taking place
  • The mobile telephone was being held, but not being used
  • The use of the mobile phone was for an emergency
