Any solicitor can try and run a Licence Appeal, but why would you use anyone other than an expert or an accredited specialist? You need a licence appeal lawyer with experience.
When Can You Appeal?
You CAN appeal against a Licence Suspension in the following circumstances:
- RTA suspension for exceeding the speed limit by 30km/h or 45km/h (you will receive a suspension letter after paying the infringement notice)
- On the spot suspensions for offences such as mid range PCA, high range drink driving, driving in a manner dangerous, speed dangerous, street racing, burnout and more.
- P plate licence suspension for demerit points loss
You cannot appeal a Licence Suspension for demerit points loss if you have a full licence.
IMPORTANT: There are no second chances with Licence Appeals – you have to get it right the first time as the Court’s decision is binding. Our experts have the experience to focus your Appeal on the important issues. We will advise you on how the process works at court, how to prepare properly including gathering supporting documentation and generally what to expect. There is a strong chance that you will need to give evidence on the Appeal.
Time limits apply – 28 days is the time in which any Appeal must be lodged after you receive the RTA notification letter or find out that you are suspended. For assistance in lodging an Appeal, call our traffic offence lawyers immediately.
