Appeal process

You can apply to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal to appeal a bar.

You can also appeal an auto-bar except when:

  • There are ongoing proceedings relating to a disqualifying offence under Schedule 2 (you must wait until these proceedings have been concluded)
  • You were convicted of a specified Schedule 2 offence and were sentenced to full-time imprisonment or remain subject to certain types of orders.

Interim bars can only be appealed after six months.

Applications for a review must be lodged with the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal within 28 days of receiving notification of a bar. You are encouraged to seek your own independent legal advice about the appeal process.

For more information on the appeal process, call the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal on 1300 006 228 or visit www.ncat.nsw.gov.au.
