Disqualified driving occurs when a person drives despite being disqualified from holding or obtaining a Queensland driver’s licence by a Court order. It is is the most serious unlicensed driving offence.
For example, if you have been charged with a traffic offence such as drink driving and then go to Court, the Magistrate can disqualify you for a period of time. If you then drive at all during that period, you will be charged with disqualified driving and you will be required to attend Court again.
It is is the most serious unlicensed driving offence as the act of driving while disqualified is regarded as contempt of a Court order.
