Unlawful license disqualifed
Can your licence be disqualifed based on a third parties request? Would love an urgent answer.
Hi there. All drivers in New South Wales must hold a valid licence. If a person commits a serious driving offence or a series of driving offences, a court may decide to disqualify that person from driving as a type of penalty. If a court orders that a driver be disqualified, the driver’s licence will be automatically cancelled. It is an offence to drive whilst your licence is suspended or cancelled.
Only the police can prosecute a driver for a driving offence and only a court can decide whether the person should be disqualified from driving as a result of their offending conduct. It is not possible for a private person to request that another person be disqualified from driving or that their licence be cancelled.
Suggested way forward
