Suspension of Driver's Licence

The Fines Unit may suspend your licence if outstanding fines remain unpaid. This means you are not permitted to drive a vehicle, or to supervise a Learner driver. Costs incurred in the application of a driver's licence suspension will also be added to the amount owed.

How do I find out about the restriction?

You will receive a letter from the Fines Unit.

What will happen if I drive when my licence is suspended?

It is an offence to drive while your licence is suspended, and this action risks attracting more fines and penalties.

How long does the suspension last?

The restriction is indefinite. If action is not taken to manage the overdue fines, further enforcements will also be applied.

How can this be done?

This enforcement action is taken in accordance with Section 70M of the Criminal Law (Sentencing) Act 1988 (SA)

How can I get my licence suspension removed?

If this enforcement action has been applied, you will need to pay your fine(s) in full or contact the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit to discuss further.
