Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I have the letter from the court appearance but it was to do with the suspension the police gave me. So the RMS issued the new suspension after i payed the fine. When I called the RMS they said I appealed to the Police suspension and that they can still issue their own suspension. I will try and send the document and see if they can remove the suspension.
I feel that if they were to issue me with this suspension then i would be recieving a double punishment for the same offence. Is that the case?
