In Victoria, traffic law offences are most commonly dealt with by the Magistrates’ Court. Traffic offences can be very serious and it is not uncommon for these offences to attract sentences of imprisonment.
Courts in Victoria have a greater discretion in determining disqualification periods of a licence that courts in other states. Very few traffic matters carry automatic disqualification periods in Victoria. In certain cases, the court can also order VicRoads to cancel an offender’s licence and disqualify the, from obtaining a licence for a further period of time.
