Driver Authorities - number issued and average processing time

The turnaround times provided are an average of the total Driver Authorities issued during the month.

When errors occur in the paperwork submitted, Roads and Maritime cannot process the application in the usual time. If a customer has an adverse traffic history or criminal record additional steps in the process need to be completed, such as adjudication.

Checks where Roads and Maritime relies on external agencies can also affect turnaround times.
