Magistrates Court of Western Australia

Extraordinary Licences

An extraordinary 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 licences.

A person disqualified from driving under a demerit point suspension can not apply for an Extraordinary 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 the Department of Transport website.

More information about extraordinary licences can be found on the Legal Aid website.
