High Range DUI in NSW on VIC license

Postby Juicyharibo » Mon Feb 08, 2021 11:21 pm

Hi guys,

I was recently charged with a high range drink driving offence in NSW. However, since i was only living in NSW about 2 months when the offence occurred, I still have a Victorian license.

Due to the charge I have lost my job and thus my apartment. I am due to hand the keys in on the court sentencing date and planned to move back to my home in Victoria.
I understand that a community corrections order may be given to me for my charge. Is it possible to serve this order in VIC instead of NSW? I don’t know how I will serve it in NSW since I no longer have a job or home here.
Could the court force me to stay in NSW?

Thanks

If you are so worried about it, come to Vic the day before your court case. The only way to get a community corrections order is to sign your agreement to entering into one.

Okay thanks for your reply.
Do you know how an interlock would work in NSW while living in VIC?
