We’re a team of seasoned traffic lawyers serving Reservoir and the surrounding areas.

Traffic law charges can lead to penalties such as loss of licence, fines, compulsory driving courses, and alcohol interlock devices. These penalties can significantly disrupt your life, making it crucial to enlist the services of traffic lawyers to support Reservoir residents.
If charged with careless driving, speeding, or driving while your licence is suspended, it’s possible to entirely avoid licence suspension or extension. However, drug or drink driving charges carry a minimum suspension period.
Our lawyers will scrutinise the evidence for errors in the collection process, potentially rendering it inadmissible. If that’s not feasible, we’ll gather items like character references to help reduce the sentence’s severity. We work tirelessly to explore every possible legal avenue to benefit your case.
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.
