Each situation differs. There is a 28 day stand down period if you have been disqualified. But don’t wait as during this period your limited licence application can be completed and filed so you can get it immediately after the 28 days. If you have been suspend for excess demerit points there is no stand down period so you can file an application immediately.

No I am not. I was a police officer for 20 years and have spent 9 years as a police prosecutor. I understand exactly what details is required in an application to ensure your application is granted.
