In Queensland there is a “zero tolerance” policy for drug driving. If you are facing a drug driving charge you need to speak to us. For more information visit our Drug Driving page.

If you have been disqualified from driving by the Queensland court, you may be eligible for a Work License. Work Licenses allow disqualified drivers to drive to and from work, allowing them to continue supporting their families. To learn more, read our License Appeals page.

It is a crime to drive without a valid Australian driver’s license. If your licence has been taken away for any reason (such as an accumulation of demerit points or your licencse expiring), it is illegal for you to drive. Penalties for these charges vary based on the reason you lost your license originally. For more information, visit our License Appeals page.

Traffic offences, in addition to penalties of fines and jail time, can also be punished with periods of licence disqualification. For the best chance at keeping your licence, read more information at our Other Traffic Offences page.
