Your Second Drink Driving Arrest: A Quick Guide

If you have been arrested for drink driving for a second time, then you need some answers, right?

What consequences could you be facing? The drink driving laws say that if you are convicted a second time of drink driving you could be looking at anything from a 3 year drink driving ban to a prison sentence.

How will you know what type of penalty you will be facing? The amount of time in between the two drink driving incidents are a key factor here. If your previous drink driving incident took place within the last 10 years, then you will be looked upon less favorably than if your previous drink driving incident took place more than 10 years ago.

What about car insurance? Car insurance is another thing that you will need to look into. You will need to be aware that affordable car insurance will be next to impossible to get if you have been convicted of two drink driving incidents.

What do you do if you are facing a drink driving offence? Of course you could talk to someone that you know who faced the same type of charges. They would definitely have advice for you, based on their own experience. Or, you could look up advice on the internet. You are sure to find all kinds of advice there, some even contradicting what your friend would tell you. While these are options, they may not be the best options. In this type of serious situation, your best option is to hire a solicitor. Your solicitor can look at every detail of your case and make recommendations based on your prior conviction and what happened that led to your current impending charge.  They will plan out your defence and walk with you through your court appearance.
