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 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.
