Find out if a vehicle licence has been suspended using the Department of Transport’s online services.

A vehicle suspension prevents the owner of the vehicle, or anyone else, from using that vehicle. It also restricts the ability to renew, register or transfer a vehicle licence.

If you purchase a vehicle with a suspended licence, email a description of the purchase details, a copy of the transfer paperwork and proof of purchase to ferwarrants@justice.wa.gov.au. Subject to approval, the Fines Enforcement Registry will arrange for the suspension to be lifted so the transfer may be considered.

Refer to the Understanding Vehicle Suspensions – Factsheet for information regarding vehicle suspensions including what to do when you take ownership or inherit a vehicle with a suspended licence.
