Hi

Ok. It is drug driving not dangerous driving.

Do you accept the offence?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No because at the time i was not impaired

Were there drugs in your system?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Probably smoked 5 hours prior

Is there anything i can do to prevent a ban

If this is driving whilst under the influence of a controlled substance then I'm afraid that a ban is mandatory .

Therefore, the only way to avoid it either not to be summonsed or to be acquitted. Obviously you cannot guarantee either of those things will happen as they depend upon the actions of others.

You do have the option to put them to proof in the hope that they will be poorly prepared. That is quite common the magistrates court.

Sadly though a ban is mandatory for this offence I'm afraid.

Can I clarify anything for you?

What will the maximum fine be

Normally, 175% of your weekly income. That is the maximum though.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Im a student?

You must have some income. Everybody has some income

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
If i pleed guilty will these help anything?

yes, it will lead to a reduction in the fine. But it does not avoid the ban.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Minimun 12 month?

Yes, it does depend only amount that was found. Also on whether there was evidence of impairment.
