Depending on the reason for the disqualification of the licence, the disqualified driver may be entitled to a 12-month ”good conduct option” instead of serving the disqualification. Exclusion from a driver`s license can be a frustrating and confusing time. The ways to restore your license apply to some, but not necessarily all, and it can sometimes be difficult to know exactly what you are entitled to. By abolishing the system of demotion of the driving licence, disqualified drivers return to the driving licence they had at the time of the offence and not to the previous level. For example, if a driver with a P1 driving licence commits a breach of the conditions that lead to disqualification and abdicates a driver safer agreement, he/she may apply for a P1 driving licence instead of returning to an apprenticeship licence. This option may be made available to licensed drivers whose driving licence has been disqualified due to an accumulation of Demerit points. One of the conditions surrounding driving with a good conduct option is that there are no two or more Demerit points during this 12-month period. If, during this period, 2 or more Points of Demerit are generated, the driver is disqualified from driving for twice the initial period of disqualification, without there being any right of appeal or good conduct. A temporary driver, disqualified for a serious offence of disqualification, may appeal to the Court on the basis of ”severe and unusual harshness”.
The driver`s driving history is taken into account. Disqualification of driving licence: a driver is disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence or obtaining an authorisation for a given period. Subsequently, if a driver violates his conditions of licence or accumulates again 4 points from Demerit or more, he is disqualified for a period of 12 months. The period for disqualification must be served, as there is no provision before the Magistrates Court (Motor Vehicles Act 1959 (SA) s 81BB (2)) If you have the right to enter into a safer driver agreement, your notification shall indicate this. If you accept the safer drivers agreement, you must inform the Registrar of Motor Vehicles within 21 days of the date of issue of the disqualification notification at a post office or within 28 days with an SA service. The Safer Driver Agreement allows you to continue riding, but if you are disqualified again, the disqualification increases to twelve months with no right of appeal. Once you have successfully objected, you cannot appeal or enter into a safer driver contract for another five years. If a provisional driver violates his license conditions or accumulates four or more points from Demerit, he may choose to enter into a DeFer Driver agreement instead of the six-month disqualification period, unless it is a serious violation of the disqualification. Provisional holders of driving licences, who have received a notification of disqualification, may choose to enter into a driver`s agreement instead of serving the 6-month period of disqualification (Motor Vehicles Act 1959 (SA) s 81BA). . . .
