Drink Driving Offences

Being charged with a drink driving offence is a serious matter.  The consequences of being convicted of an offence can have lasting effects depending upon the offence.  A conviction is likely to affect you job, business or family life.

Although cases are often dealt with by a financial penalty, convictions can result in prison sentences.  A minimum 12 month driving ban can only be avoided in a narrow range of circumstances.  If a conviction is a second offence within 10 years of the first then the minimum driving disqualification will be 3 years.
