Don’t let one mistake ruin your future
If you’ve done the wrong thing on the road, you could lose your license for anywhere from 1 month to 5 years. Without transport, your family might struggle, or you may not be able to get to work. With limited public transport options, you can’t let your mistake ruin your career or future.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What happens when you get caught drink driving? Caloundra Criminal Defence Lawyer Rowan King answers a common question:
After being caught, and formally charged (with mid-range or high range), the Police will issue a Notice of Suspension. In summary, the driver’s licence is suspended immediately.
- The person’s licence will be suspended until the court date.
- They will not be able to drive to or from court.
If convicted, the licence must be disqualified for a minimum period of:
- Low Range – (0.05 to 0.99) – 1 month;
- Mid Range – (0.100 to 0.149 – 3 months;
- High Range – (0.150+) – 6 months.
These minimum mandatory disqualification periods cannot be reduced.
If the person drives contrary to this Mandatory Disqualification Period they are liable to a further charge of “Disqualified Driving” which has a mandatory licence disqualification between 2 years and 5 years. These disqualification periods cannot be reduced. You may also be at risk of a term of imprisonment if caught disqualified driving.
The good news is that you may be eligible for a work licence. If you want advice on this issue, contact Caloundra’s leading criminal defence firm, RK Law today.
