Types of Penalties for Driving Whilst Suspended / Disqualified


The penalties for driving with a suspended or disqualified licence in Sydney vary based on the nature of the offence and the driver's history:

  • First-time offenders: A maximum fine of $3,300 and/or a potential 6-month term of imprisonment. It's crucial to note that this is classified as a criminal offence, requiring a court appearance.

  • Subsequent Offences: Under section 54.3 of the Road Transport Act 2013, repeat offences attract harsher penalties, including a fine of up to $5,500 or 12 months in prison.
