Driving Offences


Andrew Fraser

The offences of driving while disqualified, cancelled or suspended are treated very seriously by the Canberra Magistrates Court. Many repeat offenders receive prison sentences or an alternative to a full time custody such as periodic detention or a suspended prison sentence.

For first time offenders there is little risk that you will go to prison. There may be a good explanation as to why you drove. If you can explain your reasons to the court, the court may elect not to convict you or impose a disqualification period.

The following pages have been designed to inform people charged with a driving whilst disqualified, cancelled or suspended offence what penalties are likely to be imposed by the court.
