On Richard Wood of Keep Your Licence:

“Richard, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with my case and helping me to keep my license. I thought your approach and care from the off was tremendous and it really put my mind at ease throughout things.
All the best, P”

[P; December 2017]

“Dear Richard. Just a quick note to thank you for your efforts today. Also to apologise for my failure to hold it all together at the end. To be honest, I surprised myself, I guess it was simply the culmination of over 8 months of worry, and the relief was palpable. I had always maintained a cheerful countenance, but if it had gone badly, my world really would have fallen apart,  – the potential excessive hardship was neither imagined nor made up.

Anyway, all’s well that ends well and I’m very grateful for your guidance. Your judgement of how we should handle the hearing was clearly spot on.

Thanks again”

[Mr RC; Driving without Insurance and Exceptional Hardship (April 2017)]


“Richard Wood was very helpful to me throughout my case in that he was readily available by e-mail/text/phone-call to any questions I had over the 3 week period that we were in contact. He was happy to explain everything at a level which I understood. He made sure to speedily follow up the appropriate evidence I needed for my defence and the case swiftly came to a successful result. I would highly recommend his services.”

Mr Valli: Acquitted of Taxi Driving Offence 2015


“I was stopped by the police in London’s West End and was charged with Taxi Touting with no insurance. I was so shocked and I got quite depressed about the situation. I didn’t know where to turn because it is a criminal case and could harm my life and work. A friend referred me to Richard and he took my case on. Richard presented my case so powerfully that I was acquitted. I’m so thankful for the professional and impressive way he tackled my case in court. It was awesome and I will always recommend Richard if someone was trapped with a charge similar to mine.”

Azizullah Khan: Taxi Touting 2015


I and my whole family would like to express our utmost gratitude to the way you have handled this matter. I must confess that the outcome was well beyond our expectations (if not miraculous!)…..From the outset…….both of us just regained our confidence.Throughout the mitigation, I just felt this is someone who has really understood my plight and standing in my shoes. Again, I thank you very much.”

MR JJ: Failing To Provide A Specimen Of Breath


“Richard was professional and supportive throughout his engagement. He was thorough and took the time to explain and walk me through the proceedings. I wouldn’t have achieved the outcome on my own, without his knowledge and experience. I felt Richard was well worth the fee.”



“I was under a lot of stress with the court case coming up when I met Richard Wood. He made me feel more comfortable and put my mind at ease. I would recommend anybody who is in my situation to use Richard, who fought my case and helped so much in court and outside. Thank you so very much.”

MR GF:  Drink Driving


“I am so pleased you persuaded me to have legal representation. When you go through the case, you can see that it really makes a difference.”



“I am a senior solicitor and Deputy District Judge so I am used to dealing with other lawyers. I found Richard to be admirably helpful and sympathetic. He was able to see the issues clearly and quickly and directed me to to the likely outcome, and what to do practically. I was facing a notice of intended prosecution for dangerous driving which would have meant massively advise consequences for me given my position. Richard’s practical and down to earth approach put the matter into context for me. I was extremely pleased I was able to receive his help so promptly. As another lawyer, I rate Richard’s abilities as very high and competent.” 

MR HARVEY – Dangerous Driving


“Richard was professional throughout and dealt with the matter well”



“I was charged with driving without due care and attention. Mr Wood was willing to have a look at my case. I was acquitted. Working as a team, Keep Your Licence did a perfect job. I am very thankful to them. I would highly recommend them.”

MR UGIANSKIS – Careless Driving


“I was very satisfied with the service I received. Richard alleviated the stress and worry that I was feeling before the case by answering all my questions on the matter and informing me of the possible outcomes of the case. I was also impressed by the knowledge and experience Richard brought to my case. I am pleased with the professional manner Richard displayed in court and how he presented my case to the court. I would highly recommend contacting Richard to anybody with a motoring offence.”

THOMAS WALSH – Motoring Offence


“I was looking for a lawyer to mitigate on my behalf when I was charged with driving without due care and attention, Mr Wood was the only lawyer willing to have a look at my case without a fee. He then advised me to plead not guilty but I felt I did not stand a chance in court and could not afford to pay him. He explained to me that I had nothing to lose by taking it to court and that he would plead my case for free. I then got acquitted and was able to keep my license. I am very grateful for the help and encouragement he gave me because without him, I would have pleaded guilty. He is very professional and will recommend him to anyone with a road traffic offence.”



“I had to plead guilty to no insurance and received a tally of 12 points. Richard set out my case and managed to keep my licence. I will recommend Keep Your Licence to my friends and family.”
