    Hi, I was wondering if it is legal for corrective services to search your car when you go to visit someone in jail ? Do you have a right to refuse?

    1. Yes.
    2. Not if you want to be let in.

    Thank you, I said, "No, give me back my keys and cancel my visit".

    Were they right to refuse to give me back my keys and continue to search my car?

    They were within their rights, yes.

    So he does not have a right to refuse even if he does not want to be let in?

    Why would he be at the gate if he didn't want to get in?

    Sounded like he'd already parked on prison property and handed his keys in. My understanding, which could be wrong, is that once on prison property it is too late.

    Because he decided he did not agree with the conditions of entry. But then they imposed those conditions on him regardless.

    Nope.
    The car park and similar parts of declared premises are part of those premises, and accordingly, clause 90 of the Regulation applies.
