What is a Section 10?
Can I Get a Section 10?
Obtaining a Section 10 Dismissal is dependent on the circumstances of the offence. For example, for a charge of drink driving, a lower range drink driving charge is more likely to be dismissed than a higher range charge. The magistrate will look at various factors in determining the penalty, such as any previous traffic law related charges, any criminal record, the circumstances surrounding the offence, your good character and the apparent need for maintaining your licence (in terms of work or family related duties), etc., etc.
