Magistrates Court of Western Australia

Extraordinary Driver's Licences

An extraordinary driver's licence is granted at the discretion of the court. It allows someone who has been disqualified from driving by the court to drive in certain circumstances.

Information and forms are available to download below and must be used in proceedings relating to extraordinary driver's licences.

A person disqualified from driving under a demerit point suspension can not apply for an Extraordinary Driver's Licence (EDL). A Demerit Point Regime (known as Double or Nothing) is in place, and this process is administered by the Department of Transport. Any enquiries in relation to demerit point suspension should be directed to the call centre on 13 11 56 or their website.

More information about extraordinary driver's licences can be found at Legal Aid.
