    I'm getting a little worried at the moment.

    I was going to apply for a Victoria drivers licence on Thursday. However, I remember that I had a fine suspension on my learners from NSW from 2006. Will this stop be from applying in Victoria?

    Are you currently suspended or disqualified? Anywhere?

    I could have a fine suspention in NSW for not paying fines.

    Would the fine suspention in NSW stop you from applying for a license in a different state?

    Ring the RMS and find out.

    As a general thing, you don't get to double dip.
    That is, you don't get to evade suspension in one state
    by getting a licence in another.
