CLIENT KEEPS LICENCE AFTER BREACHING GOOD BEHAVIOUR LICENCE

As leading traffic lawyers in Sydney, Benjamin Leonardo – The Defenders understand the impact a suspended or disqualified licence can have on one’s lifestyle. In fact, recently our driving offence solicitors successfully managed to save a client’s licence, which would happen to impact on his ability to work and look after his grandson, despite already having a ‘good behaviour’ licence in place.

This licence is available to unrestricted licence holders who have accumulated too many demerit points in a 3-year period which would typically result in a suspension period. However, a good behaviour licence allows individuals to continue to drive provided they do not accumulate an additional 2 demerit points.

BRIEF OF EVIDENCE

Our client committed a speed camera detected offence which carried enough demerit points to breach his good behaviour licence. If the driver paid the fine, his driver’s licence would be suspended for a period of 6 months by the RMS.

DEFENCE STRATEGY

As Sydney based traffic lawyers with extensive experience in such cases, we know that Courts are normally not lenient with drivers who have committed an offence whilst on a good behaviour licence. However, with careful preparation and the obtainment of quality references, Benjamin Leonardo – The Defenders were able to put a strong case before the Court requesting for the matter by way of section 10.

OUTCOMES

Our thorough preparation and expertise were able to convince the Local Court Magistrate that our client’s matter should be dealt with by the way of section 10 good behaviour bond. This meant that we successfully achieved the dismissal of the fine and its associated demerit points, whilst also ensuring our client did not lose his licence which allowed him to continue to work and take care of his grandson.
