Cobb Law has many years experience in defending our clients against Traffic Offence Charges and people charged with drink Driving Offences.

We do our utmost to ensure you get the BEST POSSIBLE RESULT. We understand how important your licence is to you, and to your employment. We, if you are eligible, can apply to the court on your behalf for a Work Licence, Special Hardship licence or to have an absolute disqualification overturned.

Special Hardship Licences

If you have had your licence suspended due to a demerit point accumulation  and have chosen a good driving behaviour, but have accumulated 2 demerit points in that 12 month period then you May be eligible for a Special Hardship Licence. This is where the court grants you a licence with certain restrictions such as times that you can drive, reason that you can drive and even routes that you can drive on.

The licence may be granted by the court on the basis that due to your personal circumstances you will suffer hardship if your licence is taken away from you. There are factors that need to be taken into account also such as your character, your driving history and the reasons that you would suffer hardship but you can find out all that by talking to one of our Solicitors. We need to convince the court that you are a fit and proper person to continue to remain on the road, this can sometimes be quite hard. We are more than happy to explain the process to you, just make an appointment with one of our Gold Coast Lawyers today!

Work Licence Applications

If you have been caught Drink Driving (DUI) then you May be eligible for a Work Licence. A Work Licence allows you to continue driving but only for Work Purposes, and only under restrictions that are place on the Work Licence by the court. There are various matters taken into account such as previous drink driving,  Driving history, character and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) reading at the time of your offence. Our Lawyers can advise you on your eligibility and prepare the Application and Affidavit material on your behalf, and get you the best result possible!
