Driving offences of a serious nature can and do attract prison sentences. In most cases, they are dealt with by way of fines with a disqualification from holding a driver’s licence. Licence disqualification is mandatory in many cases, with some discretion in the Court to reduce the mandatory periods, however sometimes no discretion is available, or it is limited. There is a mandatory Interlock Drivers Licence in place for some offences.
We can advise you if you can challenge these disqualifications. We also advise on the Habitual Traffic Offenders declarations, the need for expert pharmacological reports in drink driving matters, crash reconstruction reports where necessary and where you may need psychological or other medical reports to assist you in your case.
