Everyone is entitled to high-quality legal representation regardless of socio-economic or financial background. At Repute Law, all our criminal cases are handled and run by a Senior Criminal Defence Lawyer — never a junior lawyer.

Every case is different, and understanding your story is paramount. Whether an offence is committed is not always cut and dry. Therefore, we will analyse your case extensively and provide an honest opinion about its merits.

A good outcome for you is far too crucial for your life. Unlike other criminal law firms, we never use inexperienced junior lawyers.

Your designated Case Concierge®, unique to Repute Law, will monitor your case, giving you regular updates by phone, text and email, so you’re never left in the dark, wondering what is happening. The Case Concierge​​® will regularly check in to ensure you’re in the loop.

Prepare for Court

A street racing charge is a serious matter. You could be fined, lose your licence, or, for a second offence, even imprisoned if convicted. It can also harm your job, employment prospects, and daily and family life. Police may also decide to clamp or confiscate your vehicle for a period. For a subsequent offence, they may do so permanently. As an alternative to confiscation, the police may take away your number plates. 

If charged with a street racing offence, we recommend you seek legal advice from our street racing lawyers immediately. You must be aware of the legalities of your position. Early representation can also make a significant difference in the outcome.

If your case goes to Court, your Senior Criminal Defence Lawyer and Repute Law Case Concierge® will ensure you are Court Ready®. Repute Law creates this unique process to ensure our clients know what to expect and how to behave in Court.

Repute Law has Senior Criminal Defence Lawyers who specialise in all types of street racing offences, including:

The prosecution must prove that the accused willingly engaged in racing or speed contests on a public road or in a public place. Street racing refers to conduct such as:

  • A race between vehicles on a road
  • Attempts to break a speed record on the road
  • Any trial of a vehicle on a road
  • Any competitive trial designed to test the skill of any vehicle driver or the reliability or mechanical condition of any vehicle on the road
  • Any competitive trial designed to test the skill of any vehicle driver or the reliability or mechanical condition of any vehicle on the road

The police must establish the defendant’s identity, provide evidence of the race or competitive driving activity and demonstrate that it occurred in a public setting. They may need to show how the accused’s speed or behaviour exceeded legal limits or threatened public safety. They must prove that the street race did not have the approval of the Commissioner of Police.

If you’re convicted of street racing, you will face disqualification from driving for 12 months or more. The maximum fine you will face is $3,300. Imprisonment is an option if it is your second or subsequent major offence.

Unlike many other serious traffic offences, the Court can reduce the disqualification period below 12 months. 

All factors will be considered, including the seriousness of the offence, your reason for committing the offence, previous driving history, personal circumstances and hardships you would face by losing your licence. 

If you own the vehicle but it wasn’t you driving, you can apply to the Court to have your vehicle returned. For second or subsequent offences, Roads and Maritime Services may permanently confiscate and sell or use your vehicle for crash testing. The maximum prison sentence for a second or subsequent offence is nine months. 

If you choose to pursue a “not guilty” verdict, our senior lawyers in street racing will demonstrate there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you organised, promoted or participated in:

  • A race between vehicles
  • An attempt to break a vehicle speed record
  • Trialling a vehicle’s speed
  • A competitive trial to test the skill of the driver or the condition of the vehicle
