why are you on a P2 licence?

You will be going to court.

High Range? 6-12 months off the road and 1-2 yrs with an interlock in your car.... But I don't understand why you would be on a P licence if you had a licence 10 years ago? A P2 licence means you could cop a worse result than the one I just outlined above.

I didn't receive a court date straight away, the police had to organize a court date with the court. They will most likely call you, where you have a choice to pick up the brief or have it posted to you. I'm only going off my own experience in Melbourne recently.

Couldn't tell you about the penalty, you may want to seek legal advice about that.

Best of luck mate.
