Mandatory Sentencing & Drink Driving

Drink Driving Penalties QLD

Have you been charged with drink driving in QLD?

Did you know that there is mandatory sentencing in Queensland for drink driving offences?

This means that the Courts MUST disqualify your drivers licence if you are convicted of any drink driving offence, no matter what the reading.  If the reading is over 0.100% then the police will suspend your licence immediately.

If the reading is over 0.150% then you are prohibited from making a work licence application.

The court has no discretion not to disqualify the licence of a person that is convicted of a drink driving offence in Queensland.

If you have been charged with a drink driving offence in Queensland, it’s a good idea to seek legal advice.
