If you've been disqualified from driving, you can apply for your licence to be reissued at the end of the disqualification period. If you'd previously held an unrestricted licence with no good behaviour period (GBP), the type of licence you receive will depend on the number of active demerit points on your driving record at the time of reissue.
What you need
- your proof of identity documents as detailed on the form
- your concession card details (if applicable)
- your old licence (if you have it)
- your contact lenses or glasses (if applicable)
- your medical report (if applicable)
- the PDF form – 'Licence Application'.

- Download and complete the Licence Application – PDF.
- Make sure you have all your documentation and any additional items (if applicable).
- Visit a service centre and submit your application.
