Before the 28th of October 2017, you could be declared a Habitual Traffic Offender by the Court or RMS. This declaration would be made if you had been convicted of three or more serious driving offences in five years. Being declared a Habitual Traffic Offender imposed a further period of disqualification for an additional five years, on top of any suspension or disqualification you received for your most recent traffic offences.
Since the October 2017, these Declarations can no longer be made. However, a Declaration previously made will still affect your right to drive unless it has been quashed (removed by a court).
At Brady and Associates we can make an application to the court to have your Habitual Traffic Offender Declaration quashed. These applications can be successful, particularly if we can prove to the court your exceptional need for a licence. If the declaration against you is quashed, this means you will not have to serve out the associated 5-year disqualification and will be able to get back on the road much faster.
What is Involved?
At Brady and Associates, we have expertise in the process of quashing a Habitual Traffic Offender Declaration. We will make sure you understand the process and will represent you in court.
The process involves:
- Conferring with you to go through your traffic history and to better understand your need for a licence
- Filing an application with the court
- Appearing on your behalf at Court to present your case to a Magistrate
We offer our clients a FIXED FEE for these matters to ensure that you don’t experience any unexpected costs.
If you have been declared a Habitual Traffic Offender, we understand that this can make you feel as though you will never get back on the road. Brady and Associates can act on your behalf to make sure that you are back driving as soon as possible.
