Removal of a Driving Disqualification
When Can I Apply?
You can only make application to the Court after the following time limits:
- two years, if the disqualification is for less than four years,
- one half of the period of disqualification, if it is for less than ten years but not less than four years,
- five years in any other case;
Therefore, if your disqualification is less than two years, you cannot apply.
Also, if you were ordered to take a re-test it is not possible to apply.
The Court Procedure
Upon making application to the Court in writing, the matter will be listed for a hearing.
The Court will have regard to:
- the character of the person disqualified and his conduct subsequent to the order,
- the nature of the offence, and
- any other circumstances of the case,
Examples of circumstances where an application may be appropriate:
- Job opportunities – i.e. a new job that is dependent upon the ability to drive;
- Health issues – of either the disqualified driver or a family member that would benefit from the ability to drive;
- Family issues – contact with children being dependent on the ability to drive.
Applications are usually opposed by the police in Court.
If your application is unsuccessful, you are prevented from making a further application for three months.
Courts are not easily satisfied and your case needs to be presented with strong supporting evidence.
