DISQUALIFICATION - ALL THE LAW
You need to know a lot of things about disqualification.
The law in relation to disqualification from driving is not easy. It involves a mixture of mandatory and discretion disqualifications, police power to disqualify at the roadside and certain situations where you may be prohibited from being granted a limited licence. It is not all plain sailing.
If you have broken a serious traffic law do not think that you can easily persuade a court that you should not be disqualified or that you should be granted, on the spot, a limited licence for work, or travelling to and from work.
Over the years, Parliament has restricted discretions normally open to sentencing judges. Much of the law, but not all of it, is set out in sections 80 to 95 of the Land Transport Act 1998.
We provide you with a direct link to the Land Transport Act 1998.
We also provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up ALL Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.
