Driving while suspended
If you exceed 100 demerit points within 2 years your licence will be suspended for 3 months.
You are eligible for a limited licence or work licence.
However you are caught driving within that 3 months you will be charged with driving while suspended.
The vehicle you are driving will be impounded for 28 days.
If convicted you face a minimum of 6 months disqualification and a fine. If it is a second, third, or more, then you will likely be dealt with in a more serious manner.
The major problem with this particular charge is that you cannot get a limited licence for a disqualification from driving while suspended.
In terms of saving your licence:
You can plead not guilty and if you win you save your licence. (It helps to have a legal defence)
You may be eligible for special reasons not to disqualify.
You may be eligible for community work in lieu of disqualification. However for this section to apply you MUST have been previously disqualified by a court.
