Is Drink Driving A Criminal Offence?
Yes, drink driving is a criminal offence in New South Wales. It is not just a traffic offence.
Drink driving is a very common and prevalent offence. Magistrates throughout New South Wales will hear tens of drink driving matters a week. Therefore, courts take drink driving offences very seriously.
Because it is a criminal offence you will have to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty at court. If you plead guilty or are found guilty, the court can convict you. This conviction will appear on your criminal record and it will mean that your licence is disqualified.
Licence disqualification and often the interlock must be imposed when you are convicted.
You cannot offer to do Community Service or pay a bigger fine to avoid having your licence disqualified.
