TRAFFIC OFFENCES
There are many traffic offences that can be prosecuted under state criminal legislation, or road transport legislation. Some offences carry minor penalties such as fines and demerit points, but others carry terms of imprisonment. With most serious traffic and driving offences in NSW, the offender would also receive a period of disqualification. Check out this page for more information...
DRINK DRIVING OFFENCES
Drink driving offences are very common and can lead to more serious consequences such as the loss of lives. NSW has taken a stricter approach to addressing drink driving offences by allowing police to immediately suspend licences on the stop and also impose disqualifications for first time mid-range drink drivers. Check out this page for more information...
LICENCE DISQUALIFICATION & MANDATORY INTERLOCK ORDERS
Licence disqualification can only be imposed by the Court pursuant to an Order if you are convicted for a serious driving offence.  This should be distinguished from a licence suspension which can only be imposed by the RMS or Police. 
Check out this page for more information about the law governing licence disqualifications:
TRAFFIC INFRINGEMENT NOTICES

The police of State Debt Recovery Office may issue the driver with a traffic infringement notice (or penalty notice) when the penalty for the offence does not involve a term of imprisonment. If you receive an infringement notice, you have the option of paying the fine or challenging it. Check out this page for more information...

LICENCE SUSPENSION APPEALS

In NSW, there are two types of licence suspensions: one is issued by the RMS and the other is issued by the police. Both are decisions that can be appealed in Court, but each have different tests that need to be satisfied in order for the appeal to be successful. Check out this page for more information...

If you were convicted of three or more serious driving offences within a period of five years before the reforms taking effect on 28 October 2017, you may have been declared a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) by the Court or the RMS. The HTO Scheme has since been abolished. Check out this page for more information..
