It is possible to apply to the Local Court to have a licence disqualification removed if the disqualified driver has completed an offence free-period.
This period is four years for individuals convicted of an offence that poses a risk to public safety, while other cases have a two year period.
If the Local Court grants a licence disqualification removal, the disqualified driver must then reapply to the Roads and Maritime Services NSW for a new licence before they may begin to drive again.
If the application is unsuccessful, another application cannot be made for 12 months.
Despite lengthy disqualifications it is possible to have your licence reinstated. Our dedicated drink driving lawyers recently appeared for a client who was disqualified for the next twenty years. We applied to the Local Court and successfully removed the disqualification.
