Frequently asked questions VIC

  1. Q: I need a court order before VicRoads will re-issue my licence. What do I need to do?

    There are two ways that a person may have their drivers licence cancelled and / or disqualified for offences such as drink/drug driving or other applicable offences (eg. assault, theft, possess drugs):

    1. Following an on-the-spot ticket
    2. By order of a Court.

    If you lost your licence as a result of an on-the-spot infringement, the licence cancellation and disqualification period usually operates 28 days after the issue of the infringement. In this situation, for the purpose of making an Application for Licence Eligibility order, you must supply the Court with a copy of the infringement notice or an extract of your driving history which is obtained from VicRoads.

    If you lost your licence at a Victorian Magistrates' Court, you need to attend the nearest Magistrates’ Court venue to where you reside to make an Application for Licence Eligibility order. The Court will ask for the appropriate fee and fix a hearing date for your application a minimum of 28 days later, the date also being after your disqualification period has ended. During this time the police will contact you to arrange an interview regarding your application.

    You should attend the Court at least 28 days before your licence or permit disqualification period ends to lodge your application and pay the fee. You may lodge your application prior to the end of the disqualification period, but the Court can only hear it once the period of your disqualification is finished.

    If your application for a Licence Eligibility order is successful, you will be given a form to take to Vic Roads so that you can arrange to have your licence issued.

    If you are unsure how you go about getting your licence back or what category you may fit into, please go to our Driver's Licence Restoration Guide or contact your nearest Magistrates’ Court for further advice.

  2. Q: Who must apply to the Court for a Licence Eligibility order before being re-licensed?

    If your offence was committed on or before10 October 2006, provided it was your first offence* and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) was less than 0.10%, you may apply direct to VicRoads to be re-licensed.

    If your first offence* was committed on or after 11 October 2006 provided your were over 25 years of age at the time of the offence, the holder of a full Victorian Drivers licence and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) was less than 0.07%, you may apply direct to VicRoads to be re-licensed.

    For any offence other than those described in the two points above, you are required to apply to the Court for a Licence Eligibility order to be re-licensed.

    *A first offence includes any previous drink driving conviction or finding of guilt which is:

    • more than 10 years old and
    • you have been re-licensed after that offence.

  3. Q: Do I need to complete a Driver Education course before applying to the court?

    For drink driving offences, If it was your first offence with a BAC reading under 0.150% it is mandatory to complete a drink driving course if you were under 26 years of age or the holder of a probationary driver licence at the time of the offence.

    It is also mandatory to complete a course in certain drug driving offences if it was your first offence and you were under the age of 25 at the time of the offence.

    However nearly all Magistrates in Victoria require that you complete such a course to gain a better understanding of the effects of alcohol or drugs in your system and how it impairs your driving ability.

    A Magistrate may refuse an application for Licence Eligibility order or adjourn the application in order for you to complete a driver education course. It is therefore advisable that you complete the driver education course to ensure there are no delays in obtaining your licence back.

    VicRoads can also request that you complete a Driver Education Course before giving you your licence back.

  4. Q: Do I have to complete an Alcohol or Drug assessment before attending Court?
