Applying For a Restricted Work Licence

A Work Licence can allow you to continue to drive for work during a disqualification period for DUI.

Experienced & Confident Lawyers for Work Licence Applications How To Apply for A Work Licence


Your lawyer will draft your affidavit material to demonstrate the following key requirements.

1. You Are a Fit & Proper Person to Hold a Restricted Work Licence

The Court will examine the circumstances of the offence against your driving history. They will then determine this by considering the safety of other road users and the public.

It is crucial to satisfy the Magistrate of this point, as otherwise, they cannot grant you a Work Licence.

If you believe you have a poor driving history, this does not necessarily mean you cannot get a Work Licence. We can review your history to first advise you on your prospects.

We have success with challenging applications.

2. You Will Suffer Extreme Hardship If Not Granted a Restricted Work Licence

You must also show that failing to grant your application would deprive you of the ability to earn a living. The Court will look at your finances and whether this would cause you, or your family, to suffer hardship. It is likely you will suffer hardship, if, without a Restricted licence:

  • you would lose your job;
  • you would lose your income; or
  • your business would suffer significantly.

Generally, you must meet the below criteria to be eligible for a Restricted Work Licence. We can review your situation and let you know whether you are eligible to apply.
