Common theory questions

What can lead to a revoked driver's licence?

The following traffic violations can lead to a revoked driver's licence:

  • Ignoring a stop sign.
  • Driving through a red light.
  • Overtaking at a pedestrian crossing.
  • Driving dangerously or recklessly.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Driving more than 30 km/h* above the speed limit.
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (in which you have been involved).
  • Repeated traffic violations (at least three within a two-year period).

* On roads where a 30 km/h speed limit applies, you risk a revoked driver's licence if you drive more than 20 km/h above the limit.

Alcohol-related unreliability and serious criminal offences, such as aggravated assault and drug-related offences, can also lead to your driver's licence being revoked.

A driver whose licence has been revoked for longer than 12 months must pass a new driving test (both theory and practical) before a new licence can be issued.

A driver whose licence is revoked during the probation period must also pass a new driving test.
