Driving without a licence

Written by Canrone Cochin

You must always carry your licence when driving.
Police can ask to see your licence anytime. If you’re using a digital
driver's licence make sure your phone is charged and the screen is
not cracked.
You can get a fine for driving without your licence with you or
refusing to show it when asked.
Your licence must be:
• current (not expired, suspended or disqualified)
• the correct licence class for the type of vehicle you’re driving
• an NSW licence, unless you’re complying with the current
requirements and conditions for interstate and overseas
driver licences. See Interstate and overseas licences 
Penalties for driving without the correct, current licence include
large fines and prison, and an increase for repeat offences within
5 years.
You must not let anyone without a licence drive your vehicle.
