Have you been charged or arrested due to a traffic offence? Don’t leave the results up to chance – Nardi Lawyers are here to help. We are a team of experienced traffic lawyers serving Doreen and surrounding areas. We have a long history of helping those charged with drink and drug driving offences reduce their fines, licence suspensions or even overturn their charges completely.
There are a number of charges related to traffic law which can result in penalties such as loss of licence, fines, compulsory driving courses and alcohol interlocker devices. All of these penalties can cause serious disruption to your life, which is why enlisting the services of traffic lawyers can help Doreen residents.
If you are charged with careless driving, speeding or driving whilst your licence is suspended, it is possible to completely avoid having your licence suspended or the suspension extended. However, if you are charged and convicted with drug or drink driving, these carry a minimum suspension period.
Our lawyers will examine the evidence compiled for any errors in the collection process, which can eliminate this as usable evidence. If this is not possible, we will collect items such as character references which can be used to reduce the severity of the sentence.
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.
