Work Licence (Restricted Licence)

If you are concerned about losing your driver’s licence or want to apply for a work licence in Queensland, Ashkan Tai Lawyers are a respected local law firm and we are able to help you.

The thought of losing your licence can be worrying, especially if you rely on driving to get to and from work. If you think you could lose your driving licence, it’s important to act quickly, as applying for a restricted licence is a time sensitive matter. Choosing the right lawyer can make a difference in the outcome of your case.

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads is very clear about the conditions relating to obtaining a work licence.

To qualify for a restricted work licence, you must demonstrate that you are a person of good standing who will drive safely. You must also show that you rely on driving to get to and from work, and that being prevented from driving would cause you or your family extreme hardship.

You can apply for a Work Licence if you:

  • Held a current QLD open driver licence,

  • Were not driving for your job,

  • You were not already driving under a Work Licence,

  • You have not been convicted anywhere of a drink driving offence (including failing to provide a specimen of blood or breath) in the last five (5) years,

  • You have not been suspended or disqualified from holding a driver’s licence in the last five (5) years,

  • Your blood alcohol level (BAC) was below 0.15,

  • Have a drug driving offence – the charge is driving with a relevant drug in your system NOT Driving Under the Influence – Drug Driving.


If these conditions leave you feeling concerned for your eligibility to obtain a work licence, please speak with us. It is our aim to help you keep your licence or to minimise any disqualification period.
