Penalties for Drink Driving on the Gold Coast

If you have been charged with a DUI offence in the state of Queensland (and depending on the severity of your charge), the penalties could include:

  • Licence disqualification
  • Hefty fines
  • Imprisonment

If your charge is combined with another driving-related offence such as dangerous or unlicenced driving, or if it is a repeated offence, then you could be facing all or a combination of these penalties. View a table of drink driving penalties for QLD and NSW for more information or visit legal sources like the Queensland Government’s Transport Department.

Talk to an experienced lawyer immediately to discuss your options.

Questions Our Solicitors Can Help Answer

If you’re caught drink driving, you will have to go to court to determine penalties.

During this time, a magistrate will determine the length of license disqualification and whether you’ll be fine or sentenced to a term of imprisonment.

This decision and severity of your penalty is based on variables like:

  • blood/breath alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the offence
  • traffic history, like whether you have been previously convicted of a drink driving offence.

If you’re unsure of what you may be facing, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Whether or not you’re ready to defend your case, we can help advise your current situation.

Offering mobile consultations is something we’re proud to do to ensure everyone has access to our team. Our drink driving lawyers service the whole Gold Coast in places like Coolangatta, Southport and surrounds, as well as wider Australia. With physical offices here on the coast in Southport, and across the country from further north in Queensland to Tasmania, we’re confident we can get to you and provide you with reliable defence.

Our drink driving lawyers will fight to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for both your license and longterm criminal record. If you need your license for work (travelling to or as part of your responsibilities), we may be able to help you apply for a restricted work license.

We can assist in preparing your application and representing you in court to increase your chances of obtaining a work licence, allowing you to drive for work purposes during your disqualification period.

Repeat drink driving offences can carry more severe penalties, including longer licence disqualifications, higher fines, and possible imprisonment. Our lawyers can help you understand your options and work to achieve the best possible outcome.
