VIC Traffic Law Home
In Victoria, traffic law offences are the most common offences to be dealt with through the Magistrates’ Court. Despite popular opinion that these are “just traffic matters”, they are treated very seriously by the Courts. It is not uncommon for traffic offences to attract penalties up to and including a term of full time imprisonment.
Courts in Victoria have a greater discretion in determining disqualification periods of a licence when compared with other states. Very few traffic matters carry automatic disqualification periods upon conviction. In certain cases, the court can also order VicRoads to cancel your licence and disqualify you from obtaining a licence for a further period of time.
