Changes to Driver Licence Disqualification

Changes have been introduced to the periods of disqualification of drivers’ licenses in October 2017. The changes provide that in some cases, drivers who have had their licence disqualified by a court, may apply to the Local Court for the removal of their existing period of disqualification.

Depending on the offence, the driver must have an offence free period of either 2 years or 4 years.

The matters that the Court must take into account include the safety of the public, the overall driving record, conduct since the licence disqualification, the need for a licence and the applicant’s health and finances.
