Driving while disqualified is a serious offence. The court takes the view that you have committed offence(s), which resulted in a penalty being ordered by the court or Transport SA. If you fail to obey that penalty, it is considered that you are in contempt of the court, or an order from Transport SA.
Terms of imprisonment can occur even for first offenders. If the court is satisfied not only that you knew you were disqualified, but that you also displayed a blatant and willful disregard for the order, then a term of imprisonment is often the starting point. Second offenders are often dealt with very harshly by the court.
