Grounds for licence refusal or cancellation

The 1997 report found that most jurisdictions had dealt very comprehensively with the agreed grounds for refusal and/or cancellation of licences.

The major omissions identified in the 1997 report included the failure by South Australia and Western Australia to stipulate that a domestic violence order or a violence restraint order automatically results in refusal and/or cancellation and that in New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia a conviction for aggravated assault does not automatically cancel a licence.

These omissions have not been rectified by the relevant jurisdictions. Also, the failure to notify change of address is not grounds for cancellation in Tasmania or Western Australia.
