Have you been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs?

A conviction in Queensland relating to being in charge of a vehicle while over the alcohol limit or under the influence of drugs typically results in being suspended from driving for a period of time, which is dependent on various factors such as:

Z
The amount of alcohol/drugs in the blood
Z
The individual’s traffic history
Z
Circumstances surrounding the offence

A person convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, cannabis, ecstasy or ICE may have grounds to apply for a work licence, although not if they have had already had their driver’s license suspended or cancelled in the previous five years.

If you have any questions regarding drink or drug driving, or would like to book a consultation for legal advice relating to a DUI matter, get in contact with Greenhalgh Pickard today. Simply call (07) 5444 1022.
