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.
