Drink driving carries not only minimum mandatory loss of licence (can be extended at discretion of the Magistrate), but also strict conditions on relicencing, such as completing a drink driving course, applying to VicRoads for relicencing and installing an alcohol interlocker device. See our table below for minimum licence cancellation period.
Not unlike drink driving, this charge carries mandatory loss of licence, the length of which will depend on your history and whether or not alcohol was also found in your system. You will also need to apply to the court for relicencing.
This charge does not carry a mandatory loss of licence provision, however, the Magistrate has discretion to suspend your licence. This charge is often relevant where an accident has occurred and it may be laid with other charges. Diversion may be an option with this charge.
This charge also carries mandatory loss of licence provisions, depending on your speed limit.
See our table below for minimum periods of licence loss.
This charge applies to situations where you are driving when your licence has been suspended by either the court, police, VicRoads or the sheriff.
This charge relates to driving where you do not have a licence or permit. It may also apply where you have moved to Victoria from interstate, but have failed to obtain a Victorian licence within 3 months.
When it comes to drink or drug driving offences, Dandenong residents may feel as though they have no recourse once they have been charged. However, Nardi Lawyers have undertaken a large number of cases where through circumstances, a mistake in evidence gathering, or other reasons, a charge has been dropped.
In situations such as drink or drug driving, there is a minimum licence suspension period. However, this doesn’t mean we have no options. Using evidence such as character references, we can negotiate reduced fines or licence suspension.
