Whether or not you will lose your license if charged with drink driving in Ringwood will depend on the specific circumstances of your case and the outcome of the legal proceedings.
According to the Road Safety (Drivers) Regulations 2019 under the Road Safety Act 1986, if you are found guilty of drink driving, you may be subject to license suspension or cancellation, as well as fines, community service, and/or imprisonment.
The length of the license suspension or cancellation can vary depending on the severity of the charge, your blood alcohol level and your prior history.
For a first-time offender, the suspension will likely be shorter than for repeat offenders. There will be minimum periods for each range:
- low range is 3 months
- the medium range is 6 months
- the high range is 12 months
- the extremely high range is 3 years.
It is important to remember that every case is unique, and the outcome will depend on a variety of factors including, the circumstances of the arrest, the blood alcohol reading, the individual’s driving history, the strength of the prosecution’s case, and the effectiveness of the defence’s case.
It is recommended that you consult with a lawyer with experience in handling Ringwood drink driving cases to give you advice about your case and the potential consequences of a conviction.
Criminal law cases can be serious and complex, which can be stressful. An experienced and high-quality drink driving lawyer will be able to navigate the system and ensure that you will receive the best possible outcome.
A high-quality drink driving lawyer will also be able to provide you with peace of mind and help to reduce stress during what can be a difficult and anxious time.
Whether a drink driving conviction will appear on your criminal record depends on the laws and regulations of the country or state where the conviction takes place.
In Ringwood, and across Australia, if you are convicted of a drink driving offence, the conviction will typically appear on your criminal record, which is a record of a person’s criminal history that can be accessed by certain individuals and organisations for various reasons, such as for background checks for employment or volunteer work.
The length of time that the conviction will appear on your record can vary depending on the conviction, the laws of the state and the nature of the charge.
It’s important to be aware that having a criminal record for a drink driving conviction can have serious consequences, including but not limited to difficulty getting a job, difficulty travelling and difficulty obtaining certain professional licences.
It is again strongly recommended that you consult with a lawyer who is licensed to practice in Victoria and has experience in dealing with drink driving cases, to provide you with accurate and detailed information about the potential consequences of a conviction.
