The law will be changed so disqualified drivers will face up to 10 years in prison if they cause death, and up to four years imprisonment if they cause serious injuries while driving illegally.
We want to make our roads safer and ensure people who cause harm face tough penalties.
Disqualified drivers should not be on our roads, and for good reason. Those who choose to defy a ban imposed by a court and go on to destroy innocent lives must face serious consequences for the terrible impact of their actions.
Today, we are sending a clear message that anyone who does will face much tougher punishment.
