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.
