RECENT TRAFFIC OFFENCES AND EXTRAORDINARY DRIVERS LICENCES (EDL)
Our client, a general practitioner, was charged with driving without a licence for the third time. A third offence could attract a term of imprisonment. A careful analysis of the complicated fact scenario which led to our client being a repeat offender allowed us to enter a plea in mitigation to the Court. The Court, after consideration, granted the minimum penalty to our client.
Extraordinary Drivers Licence (EDL)
Our client, a general practitioner, was disqualified from driving for a period of 9 months. This was his second EDL application. He was required to travel up to 100km from the Perth CBD within a 24 hour period in order to treat patients. A licence was essential for him, as he was required to travel to nursing homes and mental health hospitals to treat patients. We successfully obtained an EDL for our client so that he could drive for 24 hours a day and was allowed to travel up to 80km from the Perth GPO.
