Have you been caught driving while disqualified? Driving while disqualified is a serious offence in QLD, particularly given that it is seen as an affront to the Court system and Magistrate as you have ignored a direct order not to drive a motor vehicle. Call GC Traffic Lawyers now on 07 5528 6665 for some free advice on how best to proceed in this situation.

There are numerous reasons you could have had your driver licence disqualified, such as being convicted of a:

  • drink or drug driving offence
  • dangerous driving offence
  • criminal offence involving the driving or use of a motor vehicle.

If you then drive a motor vehicle in Queensland while disqualified from holding a driver licence, you will be charged with disqualified driving. If you are convicted of this offence, the Court must disqualify you from holding a driver licence for an additional period of at least 2 years up to a maximum of 5 years. You may also receive a significant maximum fine or face a prison term of up to 18 months.
