Habitual Offender Declaration Quashed Despite Long History of Driving Offences


Our client is a 29-year-old off-loader from Bankstown.

He has an extensive traffic record of drink driving offences, driving whilst disqualified, reckless driving and negligent driving, and previously had a Habitual Offender Declaration quashed. A month later, he re-offended and was again declared a Habitual Offender.

Without a licence, he was unable to make deliveries and earn a greater income. We advised our client to obtain a character reference from his employer setting this out, which he did.

He also provided documentation of his elderly father’s medical conditions, and a letter stating that he wished to drive his father to various medical appointments.

Despite the record and his prior Habitual Offender Declaration, we are able to persuade the Magistrate to quash the new Habitual Offender Declaration.
