Extraordinary driver’s licence (E-plates)

We offer fixed-price advice and court representation to give you the best chance of obtaining your licence.

An Extraordinary driver’s licence (EDL), also known as E-plates, allows you to drive a vehicle for specific purposes when you have been disqualified from holding a driver’s licence. You can only obtain an EDL by applying to the appropriate Court. EDLs are issued for up to 12 months.

How we can help

We offer fixed price EDL advice and court applications.

Is it worth applying for an EDL?

Assessment and advice

Assessment and advice $198

It is important to assess your prospects of success before you apply for an EDL. If your application is rejected, the cost will be lost and you will not be able to reapply for 6 months.

At the assessment, we will advise you of your prospects of success and recommend any additional steps that you should take before lodging your application.
