How we can get your licence back:
Applications to Quash Habitual Offender Declarations
If you have committed 3 or more major traffic offences within a 5 year period, the RMS will impose a further disqualification period of 5 years in addition to the period of disqualification the court has already imposed.
However you can apply to any local court for this declaration to be quashed, or reduced to a minimum of 2 years. The court must be satisfied that it is a disproportionate and an unjust consequence having regard to your total driving record and the special circumstances of the case.
There are a number of arguments that can be put before the courts to allow a quashing of a habitual traffic offender declaration. These include but are not limited to:
- The need for a licence for employment and certain occupations
- The area you live in has limited public transportation
- The need for a licence due to having to care for a sick family member who requires ongoing medical attention
Our lawyers have successfully appealed against RMS Habitual Offender Declarations for hundreds of our clients. We will thoroughly prepare your case and direct you on the material and documents you need to convince the court that you deserve to get your licence back.
