Cautions

Sometimes a prosecuting authority will offer a ‘formal’ or ‘simple’ caution instead of taking a prosecution.

 Our advice is to contact us before you agree to do so, because in some instances having a caution is considered the same as having been prosecuted.  Some licensing authorities have policies that preclude a licence being granted to anyone who has a caution until a period of time has passed.
The situation does vary depending on the type of licence in question, so it is best to check first.

We can look through the content of the caution to ensure that it is in order and accompany you whilst it is being administered.  Some authorities ask that legal representation is present when a caution is given.
