Speeding - Licence suspensions​

    When wi​​​ll your licence be suspended for speeding?

    If you are caught speeding more than 30 km/hr over the speed limit, your licence will be suspended.

    The amount of time your licence is suspended will depend on how fast you were going:

    • more than 30 km/hr over the speed limit (up to 45 km/hr over the speed limit), your licence will be suspended for three months
    • more than 45 km/hr over the speed limit your licence will be suspended for six months

    You may be caught speeding by:

    • a speed camera
    • police.

    If you were caught speeding by the police you may be suspended on the spot.

    For more information, see On the spot - Licence suspensions.

    If you were not suspended for speeding 'on the spot', Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) may still send you a letter suspending you from driving. The letter will tell you when the suspension will start and how long it will last.

    RMS may send you a letter suspending you from driving:

    • after you pay a speeding fine, or
    • when the deadline for electing to go to court has passed, if you did not pay the speeding fine or elect to go to court.

    Appealing the suspension

    You can appeal against the licence suspension to the Local Court.

    Step by step guide:  Appealing the suspension - Step by step guide.

    Alert Icon You must file your appeal within 28 days of the date of the Notice of Suspension. If you do not file your appeal within 28 days, even if the court accepts your application, the magistrate will not be able to hear your case.

    You can also elect to go to court about your speeding fine, plead guilty, and ask the magistrate for a lesser penalty.

    For more information, see Going to court.

    Alert Icon There are serious penalties for driving while suspended, including licence disqualification, heavy fines and imprisonment. If your licence has been suspended and you are caught driving, you should get legal advice.
