Drink driving is a very serious offence, given that it can have a significant impact on the lives of others as well as your own. If convicted of drink driving, you could potentially face far-reaching consequences.
Depending on the particular circumstances, the penalty will range from a fine to a prison sentence. In addition, the court will generally be obliged to disqualify you from driving for a minimum period of 12 months.
Loss of your licence could have a dramatic impact on you and your livelihood. Drink driving is a criminal offence which will appear on your record. Previous convictions for the same offence within the last 10 years will, of course, make your position more serious. In particular, the minimum applicable ban would increase to 3 years in these circumstances.
