Special Hardship Licence

Greater Law Firm Brisbane can assist you in the application for a Special Hardship Licence, also known as a Special Hardship Order.

If you have received a Demerit Point or High Speed Suspension from Queensland Transport, and you satisfy certain other prerequisite criteria, we can obtain for you a special licence which will allow you to continue driving during your Queensland Transport suspension for work purposes.

A Special Hardship Licence will allow you to continue to drive for work purposes literally as if you were never charged.

The prerequisites include, among other things, that you have not lost your licence for any other reason within the last 5 years, and that you are the holder of a valid Queensland driver's licence.

Please note, Special Hardship Licenses apply to Queensland Transport issued Demerit Point suspensions and High Speed suspensions, not Court ordered licence disqualifications.

If you have been charged with DUI Drink Driving or Drug Driving, you will need to apply for a Work Licence, which the Greater Law Firm Brisbane team can assist you with.

Special Hardship Licence applications are quite complex and there is no right to appeal if you get it wrong.

If you are planning to apply for a Demerit Point of High Speed Special hardship Licence, we strongly recommend you make contact with Greater Law Firm Brisbane today.
