Unlicensed or disqualified driving

Information about the penalties for driving without a valid licence.

It is against the law to drive in Victoria without a valid licence or permit. The penalties are different depending on whether the driver has ever had a licence or if their licence has been suspended or cancelled and whether they have been caught driving without a licence before.
