If you have been charged with drink driving, our lawyers are here to help. Depending on the level of your licence, any prior drink driving offences and your blood alcohol reading there are various steps that you must take to be relicenced. This often involves undertaking a drink-driver education program which helps you understand how alcohol influences your driving and how alcohol is processed by the body. Apart from providing you with useful information, these courses are mandatory to satisfy the Court that you have rehabilitated.
Depending on your circumstances, an alcohol interlock order may be made when you are re-licenced. This is an order of the Court that requires you to install an alcohol-interlock device in your vehicle. You are required to blow into the device to start the vehicle and are prompted randomly whilst you are driving. If you have higher than .02% alcohol on your breath, you will record a reading and the vehicle will not start. If you have an alcohol-interlock order on your licence, it is important that you avoid recording any unexplained readings as these will have to be explained to the Magistrate when you apply to have the condition removed.
