If you are disqualified for 3 years or more you can apply to have the disqualification lifted.
We have dealt with a lot of these types of cases and have a good record in them.
One particular case touched us greatly. We were approached by someone who had been disqualified for 5 years for dangerous driving. This happened when he was a young guy, he had a lot happening in his life at the time and he drove dangerously losing control and injuring someone.
During his time in prison he reflected on how his life was going and was determined to turn it around. When he came out of prison he got a job, settled down and was doing well.
The only dark cloud on the horizon was his disqualification. He was well thought of at work and was in line for a promotion. It meant more responsibility and more money but it also required him to be able to drive.
That’s where we came in. We made an application to have the disqualification lifted and started to build a case for him. By the time he came to court a month later he was fully prepared and the same Judge that had sent him to prison and told him that he would be very reluctant to lift the ban heard the case. We were able to show the judge how our clients life had changed and we were delighted when the Judge not only complimented him and his legal team but lifted the disqualification.
Of course our client was delighted, he had served his punishment and learnt his lesson and now felt he could move on with his life.
