Have you been charged with a drink driving or drug driving offence and as a result your licence is going to be suspended? You might be able to apply for a work licence which lets you keep driving for work purposes. After being charged with an offence, you will be given a time and date to appear in the Magistrates Court. At the first appearance of your matter, you will need to advise the Court that you intend to make a work licence application. Your matter will then be adjourned to allow you time to complete the Affidavits and the Application before your matter is finalised.
If you plead guilty to an offence and attempt to seek a work licence after your matter has been finalised, it is too late.
When you are granted a work licence there will be very strict conditions placed on your ability to drive, so if you are making this kind of application, it is important to seek legal advice and guidance to ensure that the conditions that are imposed on you, allow you the freedom to maintain your employment without any hassle.
There are also certain eligibility criteria which you have to meet to be able to make a work licence application. This material is put before the Court in Affidavits and failure to complete these Affidavits correctly will mean that your work licence application will not be successful.
We are here to help you go through the entire process from start to finish. We will appear at all court appearances with you and complete the Affidavits for you to ensure that all relevant material is put before the Court in the correct way.
