Driving Unlicensed in Tasmania

In Tasmania, the Vehicle and Traffic Act 1999 requires that drivers in hold a valid driver’s licence and declares that it is an offence to drive without one. Under the Act, driving unlicensed in Tasmania occurs when: you have never held a licence; your licence is expired; your licence is under an administrative suspension (for example, it is suspended under medical grounds); your licence is otherwise suspended, cancelled or disqualified; or your licence is suspended due to unpaid fines owed under the Monetary Penalties Act 2005.

Driving unlicensed in Tasmania is a summary (simple) offence which is dealt with by a Magistrate in the Magistrate’s Court, sometimes referred to as the Court of Petty Sessions.

In Tasmania you must show your driver’s license when requested by a policeman
