What You Need to Know

  • Don’t self represent & get caught with your pants legally down! The Court has its own language! We speak it! Leave the worry to us. We specialise in giving you peace of mind!
  • If you are disqualified because you have received 100 demerits or  have been convicted of drink driving, click on the red work licence get started button, fill in as best as you can, then submit and call us on 021911133 or send a text. 
  • A work licence is normally granted if you need to drive at work, must carry tools to work or do not live near any public transport. LawyerHelp specialises in getting courier drivers and truck drivers back on the road fast!
  • The LawyerHelp team will  arrange a fast phone appointment for you then quickly prepare your personal affidavit and your employer's affidavit or if you are self-employed your accountant or bookkeepers affidavit and email it to you the tame day.
  • You don't have to wait 28 days to get started if you have been suspended for drink driving. Get back on the road on day 29 or as soon thereafter.
  • There is no stand-down if you have received 100 demerits.
  • If you have been notified that the NZTA have sent you a letter by courier, don't duck it because it normally gives you two weeks grace to get your work licence processed.
  • Judges approve most of the applications we file with the court. Often Judges praise our applications in front of the client.
  • Easy payment facility. Cash, EFTPOS, Credit Card, Debit Card or Gold Nugget if you have a sense of humour.

Face to Face or Phone/Zoom Interview

Barrister Melanie Coxon can help you with immediate zoom or phone interview, (face to face when not operating under Red Light) whichever suits you, if:

  • this is your first, second or third, sometimes on the rare occasion your fourth or fifth suspension for demerit points but you will have to do a defensive driver course to improve your chances in obtaining Police consent or the Judge;
  • this is your first drink-drive conviction within the past five years (and you have no other disqualifying conviction - see above) and are now on a 28 day stand down or your stand-down period has just expired;
  • you have been charged with sustained loss of traction or another traffic offence resulting in suspension, are prepared to do an AA defensive driving course;
  • and now need a work licence as soon as possible to keep your job and alleviate undue hardship, not just hardship.

My temporary licence arrived in mail yesterday, now I can get on with my business.

Thanks very much for your good work and great help. As someone in a South Island provincial centre I was sceptical about how it would work getting my limited licence through an Auckland Barrister. Well, it couldn't have been easier, you guys were very on to it and your communication was first rate. I highly recommend you for anyone needing a limited licence.
