Special Hardship License

If you lose your license, a Special Hardship Order (SHO) is a Court order which allows you to drive under unique circumstances.

You can apply for a SHO if:

  • You have gained 2 or more demerit points when driving under a good behaviour license for one (1) year; or
  • You have been convicted of an offence of driving more than 40 km/h over the speed limit.

There are other eligibility criteria, which we will be able to go through with you.

Your SHO application must be lodged with the supporting material to the correct Courthouse within 21 days after your license has been suspended.
