After discussing it with GC Traffic Lawyers, if you are eligible to apply for a Work Licence, then you need to make the application at the same Court that you are required to attend to defend your drink driving or drug driving charge. Also, you must apply for the Work Licence before you are found guilty of the offence. If you wait and decide you need it afterwards, then it is too late and there is no right of appeal.
