BURWOOD EAST DRIVING SCHOOL

 

VicRoads Licence Test pre-requisites:


To attempt your VicRoads Driver’s Licence Test you must be 18 years of age or over.


If you are 18-20 years of age :

Pre-requisites:

-you must have held your learners permit for at least 12 months;
-you must have completed 120 hours of supervised driving;
-you must have passed your Hazard Perception Test;

Outcomes:
-if successful with your drive-test, you will go to
“Red” P-plates (peer-passenger restrictions will apply);
-after 12 months of driving on Red Ps, you may then start displaying Green Ps;
-if you wish to drive a manual vehicle, you must have sat your  test in a manual vehicle (you may then drive auto or manual). (*)


If you are 21 years of age or over :

Pre-requisites:

-you must have held your learners permit for at least 6 months (3 months if you are 25 years or over);
-there is NO minimum requirement for hours of supervised driving;
-you must have passed your Hazard Perception Test;

Outcomes:
-if successful with your drive-test, you will go to
“Green” P-plates (no peer passenger restrictions);
-after 3 years of driving on Green Ps, you will not be required to display any Ps;
-if you wish to drive a manual vehicle, you must have sat your test in a manual vehicle (you may then drive auto or manual). (*)


(*)

-It takes 4 years to achieve a “full licence” if you were initially issued Red Ps, and 3 years if you were initially issued green Ps;
-Once you have attained your “Full” licence, you may then drive manual or automatic, even though you may only have initially been tested in an automatic vehicle (you may also then drive with a blood alcohol content up to 0.05 and drive without displaying any P plates);
-If you have initially sat your Test in an automatic vehicle, and wish to drive a manual vehicle BEFORE you have reached your “full” licence, you must re-sit a Drive-test in a manual vehicle;


What to do if you are nearly 21?:

-Most learner drivers who are nearing the age of 21 tend to wait a few months so that they are 21 at the time of sitting their drive-test.... Apart from not being required to present a “120 hours of supervised driving” log book, this allows you to go straight to a “Green P” which in turn allows you to have more peer passengers in the car with you..... it also allows you to get to a “Full Licence” more quickly (for example, if you obtain your licence at age 20 years and 9 months, you will be 24 years and 9 months of age before obtaining your “Full Licence”, whereas if you obtain your licence at the age of 21 exactly, you will only be 24 years exactly when you go to your “Full Licence”).


Credit for time you have held a Motorcycle Licence:

-If you already hold a motorcycle licence, the months/years that you have held that licence will be deducted from your normal required amount of “car” years... for example if you have held your red Ps on a motorcycle for 11 months, you will only need to display red Ps for one month on your car.
