  • Can you can keep your licence?
  • If I lose my licence how long will it be taken for?

These are the very basic issues that you need to understand. Our lawyers who specialise in driving law can answer your questions.

The key to successfully dealing with a driving case is preparation and having a good strategy from the beginning. Our specialist Melbourne traffic lawyers will work out what your goals are and how we can go about achieving them.

We understand how important a driving licence is to you. We can discuss with you your likely penalty and be very clear about what sentencing range we think you are in. You may need to do a course like a Road Trauma Course before we go to Court so that we can show the Magistrate that you have reflected on what has happened. Or we may need an expert to prove that you did not drive in the way that the Police are saying that you did.
