Customer Question

Hi, I have been caught driving while disqualified due to excessive demerit points in WA. I have already had my car impounded, but still have to attend court.

JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No, I have received a statement of material facts in the post this week
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just really enquiring weather I should engage legal counsel or are the penalties set in concrete.

Hello

The charges will be driving whilst licence suspended.

It is a matter for you, however such offences are serious and I would encourage you to seek legal help and have the matter heard at court with submissions made on your behalf.
