You can apply for a driver licence at any Department of Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centre. Remember, you must not drive until you have been granted a driver licence. This means you must not drive to a customer service centre to apply for your driver licence.
At the customer service centre, you must tell the issuing officer that a court has ordered your disqualification to be removed and that you now want to apply for a driver licence. The officer will tell you whether you need to apply for a learner licence or a provisional licence and whether you need to pass a written test and/or a practical driving test. The type of licence you are eligible to apply for and whether you will be required to take a test depends upon how long you have been disqualified from holding a licence and the type of licence you held before you were disqualified.
If you are granted a provisional licence rather than a learner’s licence without being required to pass a driving test, it will only be for the class of vehicle for which you previously held a licence. If you want to drive a new class of vehicle, you will have to apply for a learner licence for that class of vehicle.
When making your application, you must:
Sample proof of identification:
Sample proof of Queensland residence:
You also may need to pass an eyesight test.
If you believe that the Department of Transport and Main Roads has incorrectly assessed your eligibility for a particular class of licence, or you have a special need for a licence, seek legal advice as to what if any options that you may have.
