Restricted Licences in South Australia
Restricted licences can be issued to drivers who have not met all of the requirements stipulated in the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 for the issue of a full licence. These can be issued where people have medical conditions preventing them from being able to undertake the full range of driving tests, or for farm workers and immediate family members of farm workers who do not have the requisite length of driving experience.
Many drivers who have been caught drink driving or drug driving will have their driver’s licence disqualified for a certain period. For some drivers this is a significant blow, particularly if it affects their ability to remain employed or self-employed. Drivers who are applying for their licence after a period of disqualification will be required to have a probationary licence.
