Work Licence QLD
Have you been arrested for drink driving and need a Work Licence QLD? In Queensland, drink driving is a serious offence and the attitude of courts here is that it wont be tolerated. That’s why its absolutely imperative that you engage a drink driving lawyer such as GC Traffic Lawyers to represent you in Court, rather than represent yourself or go with a non-drink driving lawyer who doesn’t specialise in this area.
A Work Licence is also known as a Restricted Licence and can also be applied for in the case of a drug driving offence. It allows someone who has been convicted of drink driving to drive to and from work, whether they are employed or self employed, provided certain conditions have been met.
Eligibility for a Work Licence in QLD
To be eligible for a Work Licence QLD, you need to be able show the court that you 1) are a fit and proper person and 2) need a drivers licence to earn a living and if you don’t receive a work licence, your family would be in extreme hardship.
There are many conditions where a driver is eligible to apply for a Work Licence QLD, however the key elements include:
- You have a Queensland Licence
- You have been charged with drink driving (DUI) or driving with a relevant drug in your saliva/blood or you fail to provide a specimen of breath or blood
- You need your driver’s licence to keep your job
- You weren’t driving for work purposes
- You weren’t already on a Work Licence QLD
- You haven’t been convicted anywhere of drink driving in the last five years
- You have not been disqualified from holding a licence or had your licence suspended or cancelled
If you meet these criteria, then its possible you could obtain a Work Licence QLD. It is however extremely important that you consult a specialist DUI lawyer once you are charged with drink driving. You can only make an application for a Work Licence QLD before a conviction is made and you also only get one shot at it, so its risky to try and represent yourself in Court or have a non-specialist lawyer represent you.

We go to courts in Brisbane and Gold Coast everyday and know how the system works. Its also important to go with a specialised traffic lawyer as well, rather than a large law firm that manages these cases as part of a larger portfolio.
