Traffic Law

We can help you if you have been charged with drink driving, driving under the influence of a drug, speeding or a hooning offence.

Drink driving is one of the most serious traffic offences and can lead to significant fines, loss of your driver’s licence, termination of employment and imprisonment. Being charged with such an offence can be a traumatic experience.

We can advise on your prospects of securing a restricted licence, commonly referred to as a ‘work licence’ or a ‘special hardship order’ if your licence has been SPER suspended for excessive demerit point accumulation.
