Unlicensed driving is when an individual operates a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence and can also include not having held any licence in the past five years or without holding the appropriate licence. It can also be driving whilst suspended, disqualified, or after having a licence cancelled or refused.
Unlicensed driving can result in a penalty notice of $890. If the matter goes to Court, the maximum penalty is $2,200, your licence will not be disqualified, and you cannot be imprisoned for a first offence. Imprisonment is an option for a second offence.
Since October 2017, the law has allowed disqualified drivers to apply to the Local Court to remove their disqualifications and get their licence back early. So, if you’re a disqualified driver, our lawyers for driving without a licence can apply on your behalf to the Local Court to remove your disqualification and get your licence early.
You can apply if one of your disqualification periods relates to drunk driving, DUI, drug driving, exceeding the speed limit by more than 30km/h, driving recklessly, furiously or at a dangerous speed or menacing driving, and you’ve been not guilty of a driving offence in the past four years.
You can also apply if your remaining disqualification period relates to a habitual offender’s declaration and you haven’t been guilty of a driving offence in the past two years, or in any other case if you have not been found guilty of a driving offence for the past two years.
You’re ineligible to apply if you’ve been guilty of any Crimes Act offence related to death, grievous bodily harm or wounding by use of a motor vehicle, predatory driving, police pursuit, negligent driving causing death or grievous bodily harm, intentional menacing driving or failing to stop and assist after a collision.
Let Repute Law assist you in filing the application in the Local Court. It needs to be made under section 221B of the Road Transport Act 2013.
