Do you need a restricted driving licence for work?

Did you know that to be eligible for a restricted work licence (for a drink driving offence), the following conditions MUST apply:

1. The reading must be below 0.150%;
2. You must not have been driving for work purposes at the time of the incident;
3. You must be the current holder of a Queensland Drivers Licence;
4. You must not have had any disqualifications or suspensions on your licence in the last 5 years.

The court must be then satisfied that you are a fit and proper person to be the holder of a licence AND that if you were to lose your licence then you would be placed in a position of extreme financial hardship.

If you need to apply for a restricted work licence or another kind of restricted driving licence, it’s a good idea to seek legal advice. To learn more about your options, contact us for a free initial consultation.
