If you have been charged with a serious traffic offence your Driver’s License may be suspended by Queensland Transport or the Court. If you lose your driver’s license you may be at risk of losing your job or business. The usual threats to a driver's license come from:-
1. Demerit point disqualifcation due to an accumulation of demerit points in excess of the allow amount for the type of driver's license that you hold;
2. Drink driving with a blood/alcohol concentration in excess of the allow amount for the type of driver's license that you hold;
3. Driving more than 40 km/h over the posted speed limit.
Whilst these are the most common ways in which people may face a suspension or disqualification of a driver's license these are not the only ways. Driver's licenses can be suspended or disqualified for certain offences such as those referred to as the "anti-hoon" laws which usually consist of cause undue smoke or noise, racing or illegal vehicle modications. Your driver's license can all be suspended or disqualified as a result of you driving when your driver's license is already suspended or disqualified by the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER), Queensland Transport or the Court.
