Have you been caught driving suspended or driving disqualified? Thousands of drivers are caught every year driving on Victorian roads without a licence. Most drivers have been suspended due to excessive demerit points, court suspension or a speeding ticket. You will have to go to court. There is no on the spot ticket for driving suspended or disqualified. At court the Magistrate will decide your penalty. First offenders face a $3000 fine or imprisonment for 4 months. Second offenders face a fine of $24,000 or imprisonment of 2 years. The jails are full of suspended and disqualified drivers. Mums and Dads. Sons and daughters. Professionals. Tradies. Foreign students. The law makes no exceptions. You can expect little sympathy from the Magistrate. They regard driving suspended or driving disqualified as a serious offence because you have been told not to drive and you have blatently ignored all warnings not to drive. Many Magistrates believe you have been driving suspended all the time until you were caught by police and will further suspend your licence. Anywhere from 1 month to 12 months extra suspension. My aim for all my clients is firstly to avoid jail. Secondly, I aim to avoid licence suspension. How? My 36 years experience as a lawyer means I present your case in the best possible way. I explain to the Magistrate what caused you to make this error and offer alternative penalties to jail and explain why a further licence suspension is going to be difficult for you. It is vital you call me as soon as you are caught driving suspended or disqualified as your case needs time to be prepared properly. If you have already received the summons call me immediately and I will quickly arrange a conference time to see you. For an appointment call 0412 407 577
