If you have been charged with disqualified driving (or ‘driving while disqualified’), the penalty you may be liable can be quite serious. This penalty can range from a period of disqualification to imprisonment, which is can be imposed for repeat offenders.
How You May be Disqualified
You may be disqualified from driving if you were convicted of the following:
- a drink driving offence;
- a drug driving offence;
- a dangerous driving offence; and/or
- a criminal offence involving a motor vehicle.
If you are convicted of disqualified driving, the court must disqualify you from holding a driver’s licence for a period of at least two years, but not more than five years. You may, in addition to this period of disqualification, receive a fine or be imprisoned for up to 18 months.
