Driving While Disqualified in Victoria
If you are charged with driving while disqualified in Victoria, you are facing a very serious criminal charge. Though driving while disqualified might not seem like a significant offence, in Victoria and the surrounding area, the Crown typically seeks a minimum 30 day jail term following a conviction.
All that the Crown needs to prove in order for you to be found guilty of this offence is that you were driving your vehicle, and that you were disqualified at the time of driving.
In addition to a potential jail sentence, you can also face fines of up to $5000, a minimum driving prohibition of one year to a maximum driving prohibition of 5 years, and a sharp increase in your insurance. Because this is a fairly easy crime to prove and a difficult one to defend, it is in your best interest to contact one of the criminal defence lawyers in our Victoria office immediately. We have considerable experience negotiating early case resolutions with Crown prosecutors, and can effectively assist you with resolving your matter in the most favorable way possible.
