In Singapore the offence of driving under the influence of alcohol OR drugs is a crime. 

With our wealth of experience in handling criminal defence matters, we can help you navigate through the criminal justice process in the smoothest manner and with a goal of preserving your interest as best as possible. 

 

Our Lawyers will do their best to mitigate any sentence that will be made against you thus allowing you to move forward in life with the least amount of effect from this sentence. 

If you are found guilty for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (or both), the sentence for a first time offender is typically a fine between S$1,000 to S$5,000.00 and/or a jail term of up to 6 months.

It is important to note that if the charges against you are more serious and if you are a 2nd time offender the fine and the jail term will be longer. You may also have your driving licence revoked. 

If your case is not handled professionally, you may be sentenced to jail. Once sentenced this will be on your record. However the real effect of such a sentence will be felt by your loved ones and your family. With such a record it may also affect your employment in Singapore.

Under the road traffic act in Singapore, the police can require you to take a breathalyser test, however in our experience we've found that there may be complications in obtaining the result that could assist you in your case. It is best to contact us so that we may review your case and advise you.
