Caboolture DUI Drink Driving Lawyers

The Brisbane Drink Driving Lawyer team obtained a very good outcome for our client at Caboolture Magistrates Court on Monday.

Our client was charged with low range DUI Drink Driving, having provided a blood alcohol concentration reading of 0.063.

Whilst eligible to apply for a Drink Driving Work Licence, our client chose not to apply.

Accordingly, our job was one of trying to achieve the Mandatory Minimum licence disqualification of 1 month, and to try to push for No Conviction Recorded, on account of our client's chosen career.

We were successful on both fronts, persuading the Magistrate to impose a 1 month licence disqualification, a modest fine and No Conviction Recorded.

Needless to say, our client was very happy.

In Queensland, readings from 0.050 to 0.099 constitute low range drink driving, which for a first time offence carries a licence disqualification range of 1-9 months and in certain circumstances the driver will be eligible to apply for a drink driving work licence, which permits them to continue driving for work purposes during their disqualification period.

With a previous conviction within the last 5 years, which was not the case with our Caboolture client, the penalty range, depending upon the previous reading, ranges from 3-18 months if the previous was low or mid range, through to a 9 month to lifetime loss of licence where the previous was a high range offence (a reading of 0.150 or above).
