When you finally turn 16 you usually have one thing on your mind: freedom. And with the opportunity to finally obtain your learner’s driver license, this freedom is inching closer and closer. However, before you can get there, you must first go through the necessary steps to achieving a Provisional license.
Pass the Written Road Rules Test
This test needs to be taken at a Department of Motor Vehicles and Main Roads branch, and in order to pass, you must complete the first part of the test with no more than two errors, and the second part of the test with no more than one error. The test consists of 30 multiple-choice questions about road rules and driving requirements.
To best prepare for the test, you should online practice rules test, which will have very similar questions to the ones you’ll find on the real thing. Once you’ve taken this test, you will land yourself with a new Learning Driver’s License and a Logbook to rack up 100 hours with a year.
Learning to Drive
Now that it’s legal for you to be on the road, you need to learn to drive while properly obeying road rules. The best way to do so is to enrol in a driving school. More specifically, to enrol in Learner’s Driver Training. With options of learning automatic or manual, friendly and knowledgeable driving instructors, and a fleet of industry standard vehicles to drive, Learner’s Driver Training is the best choice for you.
In order to progress to your Provisional 1 driver’s licence you must have 100 hours of supervised driving, including 10 hours of night driving. This can be a lot for families with busy lives or families that share a car, so not only can going with a driving school alleviate this stress, but they can even accelerate the rate in which you get your license, as every 1 hour spent with an instructor can be recorded as 3 hours in your logbook.
Taking the Test
This step is a lot more of a big deal than taking the written road rules test. Although it must again be taken at the Department for Motor Vehicles and Main Roads, this time you’re actually at the wheel. After 20-60 minutes of having your driving analysed, you will either receive or Provisional 1 license or be told to come back and give it another go later.
Provisional 1 License
That freedom you’ve been itching for for a year is finally here! Just remember to always display your red provisional
plate at the front and back of your car when driving, always to have your license on your person when driving, and you to abide by the road rules that your Learner’s Driver Training instructor taught you.
