Unlicensed Driving

Unlicensed driving may seem like an insignificant offence. However, the penalties indicate otherwise. The law provides that a person must not drive a car on the road unless the person holds a driver’s licence.

The most common offence for unlicensed driving is where a person has driven while being disqualified by a court order under sections 78(1) and (3) of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995. If you have been charged with unlicensed driving in circumstances where you have been disqualified from holding or obtaining a licence, you may be liable to a maximum penalty of 60 penalty units or 18 months imprisonment. As well as being disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence for a period of at least 2 years, but not more than 5 years.
