Special Licence Applications in Queensland

The penalties for many traffic offences include licence suspensions or disqualifications, which can have devastating effects on your ability to work, support your family and take care of your loved ones’ personal needs.

If you are facing the loss of your licence, you may be eligible for a special restricted licence which will reduce the impact of the suspension or disqualification.

You may be eligible for a work licence if you have been charged with either drink driving or drug driving. This licence will allow you to keep driving for work purposes and according to any other conditions imposed by the Magistrate.

If you have been charged with either a high-speed offence or if you have accumulated too many demerit points, you may be eligible for a special hardship order.  This licence allows you to keep driving for work and/or personal reasons.
