Queensland Drug Driving Laws

In Queensland, there are two primary types of drug driving offences. The first occurs when police can establish that a person is ‘under the influence’ of a drug. In these cases, the driver will be treated as seriously as a high-range drink driving offence. Alternatively, the second offence involves driving with traces of a relevant drug present in a driver’s system.

Regardless of the specific charge, the penalties for drug driving can be severe. Upon conviction, for an under the influence of drug offence, the court is required to disqualify the person from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence for a minimum of 6 months for a first offence, 1 year for a second, and 2 years for any subsequent offences. Furthermore, if other offences are involved, such as speeding, disqualified driving, or an accident, the court may impose even harsher punishments, including absolute disqualification and potential imprisonment.

I found the whole process with Donnelly, very easy and straightforward. Great communication and I felt very confident by being guided through the whole process. The outcome was far better than expected, but also everything that I deserve. I would recommend this group to anyone who is in a situation where they need representation for a matter in court.
