We will fight for your driving licence
Drink driving (often known as PCA - Driving with a Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol) is one of the most prevalent offences in the NSW judicial system. Unfortunately, it is also an offence that is indiscriminatory - people from all walks of life face these types of offences - and for many, it is a person's first interaction with the NSW judicial system. From 1 February 2015, stricter penalties for NSW drivers convicted of serious and repeat drink driving offences came into effect.

Unlicenced Driving Offences
There are heavy penalties for driving without a licence, or driving a type of vehicle that your licence doesn't authorise you to drive. It is your responsibility to renew your licence by the due date.
The offences of driving whilst suspended/driving whilst disqualified are serious offences which carry maximum penalties of 2 years imprisonment and should not be taken lightly.

Habitual Traffic Offender Declarations
A Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) declaration is an additional penalty imposed by the RMS (formerly RTA). This means that on top of any court imposed disqualification period the RMS may disqualify you from driving for another 5 years. In some cases, a court can even increase this period.
It is crucial that you obtain advice from an experienced legal team who is ready to make an application to quash the HTO and help you get your licence back.
Call CBD Criminal Defence Lawyers now to apply to have your declaration quashed.
