Drug Driving

Drug Driving


The Department for Transport has introduced a new driving offence which came into force on 2nd March 2015 - driving with certain drugs above specified limits in the blood. Anyone found to have any of these drugs in their blood above the specified limits will be guilty of an offence, whether their driving was impaired or not. To identify the drug taken a blood sample will be taken at a police station and sent for forensic test. However, there is a medical defence for people taking the drugs for medical reasons, if their ability to drive was not impaired. Please follow the link below for more information:
