My brother was caught in drink driving. He was having a BAC more than the prescribed limit, even after the 3 hours breath test. As a result, my brother went to court and was given a fine of 500$ by the magistrate and drivers licence suspension of 6 months. My questions are, 1. is drink driving a crime? 2. Will this drink driving case stop my brother from filing Australian Permanent Residency? My brother was given a fine which he paid and his drivers licence suspension time have been completed, and apart from this drink driving, his records are all clear. Please guide me in this matter. How can I find out if everything is finished after paying a fine or if it will always remain on my brother's record and he will not be able to file for an Australian Permanent Residency?
