When you’ve been charged with reckless driving, speeding or drink/drug driving offences, your initial reaction may be to dismiss it as minor and unimportant. However, a traffic offence conviction can result in serious penalties, such as heavy fines, loss of licence and even jail time.
For this reason, it is important to engage only the most competent and experienced traffic lawyers in Greensborough. Nardi Lawyers have hundreds of satisfied clients and are passionate about helping everyday Melburnians with their traffic violations.
At Nardi Lawyers, we strive to achieve the best possible results for our clients. This means:
We achieve this by meticulously combing evidence and surrounding circumstances for errors. In many cases where mistakes were made during evidence collection, we have been able to have the case dismissed entirely. Where this is not the case, our use of character references, driving record and reasons for reducing the charge have resulted in reduced penalties in the majority of cases.
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.
