Novice Range Drink Driving WA

Novice drivers must have a zero blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at all times. If they violate this rule they will be imposed with fines and disqualification which is actually a cancellation of the license. Once the provisional license is cancelled the violator cannot get a license until the period of disqualification expires.

If the BAC is between 0.00 and less than 0.02 the penalties are a fine of between $150 and $300 and 3 demerit points while the imposition of disqualification is discretionary. If the BAC is between 0.02 and less than 0.05 the penalties are disqualification for 3 months, 3 demerit points and fines of between $150 and $300.

The disqualification penalty would further delay the application of the novice driver for a full license. Hence, an accused for this charge must strive to appeal to the court not to impose a disqualification penalty.
