How to beat a Prescribed Drug Driving Charge

Drug Driving Matters, like other drink driving matters, are very serious given the serious legal consequences. However, no case is unbeatable.
As such, there are a number of ways to successfully defend a Drug Driving charge.

If the offender is charged with a Prescribed or Illicit Drug in their oral fluid, blood or urine, they may have a defence if they did not knowingly consume the prescribed drug present in his or her oral fluid or blood. The offender must prove this on the balance of probabilities, which is extremely complex for an individual to argue.

Do I need a lawyer to represent me for this charge?

There are also many other drug driving defences available to argue. These are similar to the defences described in the preceding Drink Driving links. It is your choice whether to represent yourself or whether to have a solicitor represent you in Court for this charge. If you are worried about imprisonment, fines or disqualification, we would advise having a solicitor represent you.
For someone who is unfamiliar with the Court system, having to navigate a drink driving charge can be daunting. Our solicitors specialize in these matters and will use their experience and expertise to lead you through the process to the best possible outcome.
