Driving without a License

There are several ways a person can be detected as driving without a driving licence:

  1. Never bothered to get one;
  2. Didn’t bother to renew one;
  3. Lost because fine default;
  4. Lost because of demerit points;
  5. Lost because of a specific offence;
  6. Lost because of a judicial order;
  7. Didn’t bother to renew following a cancellation, suspension or disqualification.

This section will look at some of the offences and circumstances which result in a driver losing their driving privileges.

There are some instances where an offender can be imprisoned for driving without a licence, so this is an area to be taken seriously. Repeat offences carry mandatory disqualification periods and can result in the loss of driving privileges for years.

A driving licence is often crucial to people to be able to work, shop and parent their children. The courts refer to driving privileges, and the right to drive is a privilege, but also, often a necessity.

If you wish to challenge an outcome that has resulted in the loss of your licence, see our section on Licence appeal [CAN THIS BE A LINK TO LINK TO THE LICENCE APPEAL SECTION PLEASE.]
