Applying for an early return of your driving licence following a ban

It is possible to apply for the early return of your driving licence if:

  • Two years have passed since disqualification of four years or less was ordered; or
  • One half of the period of disqualification has passed, if four years to ten years disqualification was ordered;
  • Or five years have passed in any other case.

    The court that imposed the original ban must hear the application and they will consider the following:

    • Your character and post-conviction conduct
    • The nature of the offence for which you were convicted; and
    • Any other circumstances of the case.

      It is only possible to apply for the early return of your driving licence if no retest has been ordered by the Court.

      If your application is refused, you may renew the application after three months from the date of refusal.
