You Need a Licence in the Country

In the country it is almost an absolute necessity to have your driver’s licence to engage in employment, sport or travel to far-flung reaches of Gippsland.

About Police Charges

  • Police often charge with numerous offences arising out of one incident
  • Many charges carry automatic disqualification of your licence
  • Automatic disqualification can last from 6 month to 4 years

Legal Representation is Important

It is crucial to engage the services of a lawyer when appearing at Court because:

  • Going to Court alone can be incredibly stressful.
  • Laws and court procedures are complex
  • Each judge or magistrate has a different  personality

  • Be fully prepared,
  • Be fully represented
  • Be assured of a good result.

You’ll have an “insurance policy” against outcomes that could affect your liberty and employment.
