Drink driving and other traffic offences

We can give you advice on the likely period of disqualification and whether you could qualify for a restricted licence. We can also provide on the likely monetary penalty for drink driving and other offences. In more serious cases or repeat offending we provide experienced and quality legal representation.
Special Hardship/Work Licence
If your license is to be either suspended or disqualified then provided you meet certain eligibility criteria you may apply for a Special hardship order or a restricted license which would allow you to drive a motor vehicle for designated purposes such as work. There are many eligibility requirements which needs be evidenced and many exclusionary provisions. It is also the case that the application for special hardship order or restricted license can only be made at certain times otherwise any such application will be excluded.
