  • A NSW Police decision to issue an immediate suspension for offences such as Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI), middle or high range drink driving, street racing and other offences; 

  • When you have a driver licence and you wish for the court to dismiss an offence that will lead to a loss of your licence. A matter can be dismissed by pleading ‘not guilty’ and challenging the offence or by pleading ‘guilty’ and asking the court for leniency and receive a Section 10 or Conditional Release Order without conviction.
