Ive recently got a new job where normally I finish between 10:00pm-10:30pm which can vary and then with commuting times home taken into consideration it can make me get home as late as 11pm. I'm 19 turning 20 and I've been on my restricted license for about 9 months and I'm wanting to apply for an exemption to drive after hours for Monday-Friday until 11pm so I'm able to drive home without breaking the law.
Ive been reading online with people in similar situations having no luck so would it even be worth it applying? Walking is out of the question as it's about an hour and 40 minutes walking home in secluded areas which isn't safe and the bus systems in that area stop before 10:00pm, I also don't know of anyone else that would be able to take me home, and I'm working on my own as the job is with a private cleaning company so it's not like I can travel home with a work mate.
Any insight would be much appreciated.


Hi there,
All you can do is apply and state your case and hope they approve it. Usually we get questions from those wanting to carry siblings to school etc while on their restricted- which is statistically declined from what the information we receive.
