No licence suspension or disqualification for client charged with driving with illicit drugs

Illicit drug present in oral fluid: cocaine

Nate* was driving in Southwestern Sydney when he was stopped by police for a Random Breath and Drug Test.

Nate’s alcohol reading was negative but after undertaking an oral fluid test, a positive detection to cocaine was produced. He was then charged with driving with illicit drug present in oral fluid under section 111(1)(A) of the Road Transport Act 2013. Nate also made an admission that he had taken cocaine the previous day.

Outcome: CRO order with No jail sentence or licence suspension / disqualification

We represented Nate at a local court in southwest of Sydney. As instructed, we entered a plea of guilty and provided the court with:

  • a number of references,
  • an apology letter from Nate,
  • and a Certificate of Completion of Traffic Offender Intervention Program (TOIP).

As a result, Nate received a favourable result of an 18-month Conditional Release Order without conviction. The Court made no order suspending nor disqualifying Nate from driving.
