Drink driving is treated as a serious offence and if you are found guilty you will have a criminal record. The only way to avoid a criminal record when you charged with a drink driving offence, is to have the charges withdrawn or be found not guilty. It is up to the magistrate or judge to decide whether you receive a conviction. In many cases you may also be disqualified from driving for a certain time and the court will consider submissions regarding whether, and if so, for how long, any disqualification period should last.
