Driving Suspended/Disqualified

What is driving whilst suspended/disqualified?

Driving whilst suspended or disqualified is a serious offence. Many people in the community do not appreciate how harshly courts can deal with repeat offenders.  Where a person has continually ignored court orders and repeatedly offended, most magistrates will sentence that person to a term of imprisonment. In terms of your driver’s licence, for a first offence a person will typically be disqualified for one year. For each additional offence, a person is in most cases disqualified for a further two years. In other words, three offences can see you without a licence for many years with no avenue to appeal. It is important to instruct a criminal lawyer for these offences or they may haunt you for a very long time.
