What if I am denied a licence?

Applicants are only denied a licence when there are serious concerns regarding their honesty or integrity. The LGA will notify you in writing if your application is denied. You will be given an opportunity to speak to the LGA about the details of the denial.

Applicants who are denied and disagree with this outcome may appeal the decision to the LGA board. You must file a formal request for a board appeal. You will be required to present your arguments to the board either yourself or through legal counsel.

All board hearings are public. Closed hearings must be requested and approved prior to the hearing. Board decisions are final and binding.
