A driver’s licence can be suspended for a variety of reasons including:
- Accumulation of demerit points
- Speeding over 25km/h
- Non payment of fines
- Immediate suspension following a drink driving offence.
If your licence has been suspended it is illegal to drive on a road or road related area in a vehicle class to which the suspended licence relates to.
If you are caught driving whilst serving a suspension period you can be charged with ‘drive while suspended’ which is dealt with by a court.

Penalties for “drive while suspended”
The court has the discretion to impose a number of penalties for the charge of ‘drive while suspended’. These include hefty fines, terms of imprisonment, community work, and further licence cancellations. It is important to note that if you plead guilty (or are found guilty by the court) to the offence the court still has the discretion not to cancel your licence any further.
The court will consider several factors in determining whether you are an appropriate candidate to keep your driver’s licence. Factors such as your driving record, your good character, your need for a licence and your early plea of guilty. Of course, good representation is a must.
