c. Driving while disqualified

A more serious offence related to driving licences is “driving while disqualified”.  A person committing this offence “is liable to a fine of $10,000 and to imprisonment for 12 months”; and unless there is any special reason for committing the offence, the Court shall order a further disqualification of at least 12 months in the case of a first conviction, and at least 3 years in the case of the second or subsequent conviction (section 44 of the Road Traffic Ordinance (Cap.374 of the Laws of Hong Kong)).
