RMS Driver and Rider Licence Suspensions Set Aside on Appeal


Our client is a 35 year old consultant for a number of insurance companies.

He has an unrestricted driver licence and a P1 motorcycle rider licence.

He has several entries for speeding offences, two mobile phone offences, a red light camera offence and an offence of negligent driving offence occasioning grievous bodily harm on the record for his driver licence.

He was detected riding his motorcycle at a speed greater than 30 km/ over the long weekend, which was a double demerit points period.

He was suspended from driving and riding altogether, as offences accrued on a driver or rider licence count for both.

He elected to have the matter dealt with in court, attended a traffic offender program, obtained character references attesting to – among other things – his need for a driver licence, the circumstances of and leading up to the offence, and his remorse.

He also prepared an apology letter to the court.

In court, our senior lawyer made extensive submissions regarding a range of matters, including his need for a licence, and the presiding magistrate was persuaded to set aside the RMS suspension.
