Driver Licence Disqualification Reform in NSW

The Road Transport Amendment (Driver Licence Disqualification) Act 2017 came into force on the 28th of October 2017 in NSW to protect the community’s safety and to minimise repeat offending and unauthorised driving.

Before this amendment, drivers who committed a driving offence could have been disqualified for more than a decade. This lengthy disqualification period led to many disqualified drivers illegally taking to the road and consequently reoffending. The reforms provide these disqualified offenders with new avenues for lawful and regulated driving if they demonstrate their compliance with the disqualification.

It also gives greater police powers to crackdown repeat offenders and certain serious driving offenders. The new reforms will:

• enable the Local Court to lift the disqualified period early for certain disqualified drivers who have complied with their disqualification period for a minimum of two to four years;

• empower police to confiscate number plates or vehicles for a period of three or six months for repeat unauthorised drivers and those committing certain serious driving offences;

• abolish the Habitual Traffic Offender Scheme, which has shown no effect of deterrence;

• establish mandatory disqualification periods for unauthorised driving offences and reduce maximum imprisonment terms for unauthorised driving offences; and

• ban anyone who has been convicted of driving offences relating to death or grievous bodily harm from making an application to lift their disqualification period.
