Brisbane High Range DUI Drink Driving Lawyers

The Brisbane Drink Driving Lawyer team achieved an excellent outcome at Brisbane Magistrates Court recently.

Our client was charged with High Range DUI Drink Driving after having provided a blood alcohol concentration reading of 0.234.

Given our client was a professional Truck Driver, they obviously held grave concerns with regard to the length of the licence disqualification.

We made forceful verbal submissions on this issue to the Magistrate.

Our client faced a potential lifetime loss of driver's licence for driving with a reading of 0.234.

We secured an 11 month licence disqualification and a modest fine for our client.

In Queensland, readings of 0.150 and above constitute high range drink driving, which for a first time offence carries a licence disqualification range from a minimum 6 months to a maximum lifetime loss of licence.

Persons charged with high range drink driving are not eligible to apply for a work licence.

With a previous conviction within the last 5 years, which was not the case with our client, the penalty range, depending upon the previous reading, ranges from a minimum 9 months if the previous was low or mid range, through to a minimum 12 months if the previous was high range, with the same maximum lifetime loss of licence as a first time high range offence.
