Unauthorised Driving and Applications to Remove Disqualification Periods

As either a criminal lawyer or a practitioner who dabbles in criminal matters, traffic matters are likely a common occurrence in your practice. On the face of it, traffic offences appear straight forward, and for experienced lawyers that is generally the case. Despite this, it is important to keep appraised of recent law reform in the field. Unauthorised driving offences are just one aspect of traffic law which has been subject to significant reform over the past two years. These reforms impact the way in which you should advise clients, prepare and appear in unauthorised driving matters.
