Driving Suspended or Disqualified Penalties
Driving Suspended or Disqualified
First time offenders can receive up to four months imprisonment and second time offenders face a maximum of two years. Typically driving without a license VIC or whilst disqualified is considered more serious and will be dealt with as such by the Magistrate.
It is however unlikely that a first time offender will receive a term of imprisonment, and on most occasions discretion will be exercised by the Magistrate to impose an additional suspension or disqualification, together with a fine.
Driving Without a License VIC
There is no mandatory minimum period that an offender must be taken off the road in relation to an unlicensed driving charge, but it is instead at the discretion of the Magistrate.
The maximum penalties however are quite significant, including between 1 and 4 months jail in some circumstances.
If you have been caught driving without a license VIC, disqualified or suspended, you need legal representation!
