There are certain traffic offences where the court must cancel your licence for example:

  • Drink driving
  • Drug driving
  • Unlicensed driving (except simpliciter)
  • Disqualified driving
  • Dangerous driving

For other offences such as unlicensed driving (simplicitor – no suspension/disqualification at time of the offence) the Magistrate will decide in court whether or not to disqualify you from holding or obtaining a licence and prohibit you from driving.
