Drink and Drug Driving
Drink driving in Queensland is a serious offence and there is a no tolerance attitude by the courts, if you are ‘over the limit’ you will be charged and you must receive some period of disqualification
It may be possible for you to apply for a work licence but this must be done at the time you appear in the court to plead guilty, it cannot be done afterwards. Please see our section on work licences for further information.
Well thought out submissions and arguments before a Magistrate can in our experience significantly reduce the length of your disqualification. There are a number of factors that can lead a magistrate to impose the lowest penalty possible, we know them all. Visit our drink driving page for more information.
Drug driving is becoming more common on Queensland roads.
There are two possible drug driving charges in Queensland either;
- driving whilst a relevant drug is in the system; or
- driving under the influence of a drug (“DUI”)
In essence driving with a relevant drug in the system is similar to low range drink driving while driving under the influence of a drug is similar to high range drink driving.
