Drive Disqualified, State False Name and Address

The client was charged with driving disqualified after receiving a substantial period of disqualification for his fourth offence of exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol.

His matter was complicated by the fact he was charged with giving a false name and address to the police. The client has a prior conviction for driving whilst suspended.

We represented the client at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court.

The client received a great result considering a very poor driving history, having provided good documentary evidence for driving on the day and very good reference material from his family and employer.

On the charge of driving whilst suspended the client was convicted and sentenced to 1 month imprisonment, wholly suspended for 12 months.

On the charge of stating a false name and address, he was convicted and fined $300.

The client’s licence was cancelled and he was disqualified from driving for 6 months.
