Persons who have received a Queensland Transport Suspension Notice will be prevented from driving for at least 6 months, unless you are granted a Special Hardship Licence.
A Special Hardship Licence allows you to continue driving for work purposes only during the suspension period.
Queensland Transport issue Suspension Notices as a result of the accumulation of too many demerit points, as well as for exceeding the speed limit by more than 40 kilometres per hour.
For example, when a person accumulates too many demerit points, Queensland Transport will send that person a letter asking them to choose between what is known as a Good Driving Behaviour Period, and a 3 month licence suspension.
If the person ignores the letter, they will get a 3 month licence suspension by default.
If they elect the Good Driving Behaviour Period, they will be given 2 bonus demerit points to last 12 months.
If the person accumulates no further demerit points during that 12 month period, that will be the end of the matter.
If they do accumulate 2 or more demerit points, that will trigger a 6 month licence suspension.
A successfully applied for Special Hardship Licence will overlap the 6 month suspension, permitting that person to continue driving for work purposes only during the suspension period.
Similarly, a Special Hardship Licence can be granted to a person who has received an immediate 6 month licence suspension for having exceeded the speed limit by 40 kilometres per hour or more.
