20. ♦ introduction - Probationary and restricted licences

 
 

Probationary licences

If you were disqualified from holding or obtaining a licence by a court
and you have now served the period of disqualification, you will be issued
with a probationary licence.

If you held a P1 or P2 licence before you were disqualified, you will get a P1 or P2 probationary licence. You will be required to hold a probationary licence for at least one year. You must continue to comply with the conditions applicable to your P1 or P2 licence, including displaying P plates on your vehicle while driving. If you held a P provisional licence (issued before 1 July 2007) or an open licence before you were disqualified, you will get a P probationary licence. You will be required to hold a probationary licence for at least one year.

Conditions for probationary licence holders

You Must:

• Hold the probationary licence for at least one year
• Carry your licence at all times when driving. If you are waiting to receive your licence in the mail, you must carry your Driver Licence Receipt.
• Have a zero BAC when driving.
• Comply with a late night driving restriction (if you held a P1 or P2 licence and were under 25 at the time of committing the offence that resulted in your disqualification), prohibiting you from driving between 11pm and 5am, if required,

You may:

• drive any class of vehicle shown on your licence
• learn to drive a higher class vehicle as long as you are with someone who
holds an open licence for that class vehicle and has held that licence for
at least one year.

Note: High-powered vehicle restrictions also apply to probationary licence holders who return from a disqualification to a P1 or P2 probationary licence, when at the time of the offence they were under 25. These restrictions apply for the duration of the probationary period regardless of age.
