Join Wiseman Lawyers Traffic Lawyer Andrew Wiseman at Biloela Magistrates Court as he represents a client charged with Drink Driving. Watch Andrew explain what happened in the courtroom, along with the outcome which he achieved and how he achieved it.

All right, so I’m at Biloela Magistrates Court. It’s about a one hour flight north west of Brisbane. Client was charged with low range drink driving, reading a 0.081. He’s from New South Wales, so obviously for that reason he doesn’t hold a Queensland driver’s licence and because he doesn’t hold a Queensland driver’s licence, he couldn’t apply for a DUI drink driving work licence. Just to sort of rehash earlier videos I’ve done on this issue, to get a DUI drink driving work licence, one of the prerequisites is that you hold a current Queensland driver’s licence on the day you’re intercepted. Because that wasn’t the case, he was not able to apply for a DUI drink driving work licence, so my job is one of getting the disqualification down as low as possible.

Low range 0.081, worst case is a nine month loss of licence, mandatory minimum is one month. With regard of preparation, I asked him to do an online course about road fatalities and that kind of trauma. I got him to get a bunch of character references based on a template we provide all of our clients. I came up yesterday, flew up, met the client this morning. We grabbed a conference room, ran through my submissions, what he can expect the magistrate to say, prosecutor, myself, et cetera.

The prosecutor was seeking a three month disqualification. I was obviously here to get it down as low as possible. Look, the short version is I was able to persuade the magistrate to give the mandatory minimum one month, so my client got a one month disqualification. Modest fine. He’s obviously very happy. He’s off the road for a month, then in a month, he goes and renews his licence and he’s back on the road.

So one month disqualification, modest fine. I’m Andrew Wiseman at Biloela. Thanks for watching.
