      Section 10 for Breach of Good Behaviour Licence

      Recently Astor Legal appeared at Downing Centre Local Court for a client who had breached a good behaviour licence.

      Our client did not have the best driving record. In particular, he had offences ranging from use mobile phone while driving to speeding. 

      He had breached the good behaviour licence by committing a further speeding offence. He came to us concerned that a loss of licence would mean that he was no longer able to maintain his work duties or take care of his children as a single parent. As he lived in a country area he was unable to access public transport.

      We immediately got to work. We obtained references from his friends and family which supported our client’s good character and need for a licence. 

      Our client also enrolled into a Traffic Offender Program. This allowed us to address his traffic record by submitting that he now appreciated the dangers of speeding as well as other traffic offences. 

      We appeared at Downing Centre Local Court on his behalf and made detailed submissions before the Presiding Magistrate. We drew upon our client’s executive government position and ambitions for further studies in law. 

      Despite our client’s lengthy traffic record, His Honour was persuaded to deal with the offence by way of a conditional release order without conviction. This means that our client remains on the good behaviour licence and does not face any suspension.
