Drink Driving Offences – Will I lose my licence?

Victoria has some of the strictest road laws in Australia, particularly when the offence involves drink driving. Drink driving offences in Victoria attract a mandatory period of licence suspension and these mandatory periods vary depending on the alleged blood alcohol reading and whether or not you have any previous history of drink driving. There are a number of ways to potentially defend a drink driving charge and allow you to keep your licence. The most common defence is operator-error (i.e. the police incorrectly administered the breath analysis test). To find out more about whether you have a defence, how long you will lose your licence for, or whether you might be subject to an alcohol interlock program, you should seek legal advice relevant to your particular circumstances.
