What are the penalties for drink driving?

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

Visit the Queensland Government’s Drink Driving Information for a broad range of information, or view our traffic lawyer’s table of drink driving penalties for QLD and NSW for a more detailed and specific breakdown.

How can our Cairns drink driving lawyers help with your drink driving case?

If you are caught drink driving, you will have to go to court. A traffic lawyer in Cairns can help you with this. The magistrate will decide the length of your licence disqualification and whether you will be fined or sentenced to a term of imprisonment. 

The severity of the penalty will depend on your blood/breath alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the offence and traffic history, including whether you have been previously convicted of a drink driving offence. To get advice from a Cairns traffic lawyer before going to court, please contact us for help.

How a traffic lawyer can help

Depending on the circumstances of your case, Brooke Winter Solicitors can provide advice and help with:

  • Applying for a Restricted Work Licence if you rely on your licence for employment obligations.
  • Applying for a Special Hardship Order if you rely on your licence for family obligations.
  • Reducing your licence disqualification period and possibly the amount of your fine.

We can also assist with criminal offences in Cairns.
