Coronavirus: Attendance at Scottish CourtsScottish Courts and Coronavirus

For up to date advice on whether you need to attend court, the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service website is providing up-to-date information.   If you need advice on the likely impact of coronavirus on your driving case, conctact us.

Update on 24 March 2020: Coronavirus and attendance at Scottish Courts

For road traffic cases where there is a plea of Guilty, cases will proceed in the Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court. However, you should not attend court in person.  For professional advice regarding your attendance, in court, contact a solicitor.

If you have a Trial or Exceptional Hardship Hearing, these will be postponed until the public comes lock down ends.  Again, if you need advice, contact a solicitor.

At Pleading Diets (the first hearing of a case where the court requires you to plead either Guilty or Not Guilty) your should not attend but you do need to respond, either in writing yourself or by instructing a solicitor.   Advice from the courts regarding attendance is here.   If in doubt, get legal advice.
