Case: Licence suspended for drink driving.

Our client is a 28 year old tradie whose licence was immediately suspended under s 85 of the Road Safety Act for drink driving and performing burnouts. 

Result/ Appeal granted

Our lawyer lodged an appeal against licence suspension to provide time for our client to arrange his affairs and hire an apprentice. He needed his licence for work, to care for his sick mother and pay his home loan. It was a first-time offence. Magistrate was satisfied that there were exceptional circumstances to cancel the suspension.
