Driving Disqualified – Fine, No Loss of Licence
Our client had been charged with one count of Driving Disqualified. His licence had been suspended for six months from January and he was caught driving in May. He had lost his licence for driving at more than 35 km/h over the speed limit. He also has one prior for driving whilst suspended and one prior for drink driving.
We represented the client at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court.
We explained the client’s personal situation to the Magistrate and the negative effect a further loss of licence would have on the client’s employment. Our client is a tradesperson and is required to work at various sites around Melbourne. The magistrate was ultimately convinced and imposed a fine with no further loss of licence.
