Novice Range Drink Driving SA
Learner, provisional and probationary drivers must not have any alcohol in their blood. It is considered as a breach of their license if they violate this rule. There are dire consequences for violations.
The application of these drivers for full licences will take a longer time since one of the penalties is the license disqualification. There is also the imposition of fines and demerit points.
The Road Traffic Act 1961 provides that a person is prohibited from driving a motor vehicle or attempt to drive it while there is the prescribed alcohol concentration in his or her blood. A lawyer can set up the defence of the accused by proving that there was no attempt to drive at all. It could be also that the breath test was improperly taken. A breath sample is only admissible in court if it is taken within 2 hours of driving or attempt to drive.
