WD – Successful outcome for client charged with driving offence

Facts: driving while disqualified and speeding

WD was charged with driving while disqualified and speeding 20km/h over the limit. WD was caught driving 104km/h in an 80km/h work zone. Police later stopped WD’s vehicle and asked him to produce his licence. WD is on a working visa in Australia and gave police an international license. When asked if he held a NSW driver’s licence, WD told the police no.

Police later found out that he did hold a NSW driver’s license which was disqualified until 2023.
