Driving Test Warriewood RMS

P Plate driving tests Warriewood RMS / RTA.

We are a local Northern Beaches driving school that can provide you with the knowledge and experience required to confidently pass your driving test and get your P-plates, Australian provisions licence, at the Warriewood RMS (formerly Warriewood RTA).

We take students for driving lessons around the Warriewood area.  This is a great way for learner drivers to become familiar with the streets where the RMS Warriewood driving instructors take students every day to conduct their driving tests.

Are you a first time driver? We’re here to help!

Never been behind the wheel of a car before? Are you concerned about driving on busy streets for the first time? Don’t worry, we’re here to help.

First time drivers

Many of our students are first time drivers who haven’t previously driven a car on a public road.  In this instance, the first lesson typically takes part in a safe, controlled environment (not shopping centre car parks) where the student can experience conditions similar to a public road but with no risk of accident or to public safety. This allows students to get a “feel” for vehicle control such as braking, accelerating, scanning and head checking.

Once the student has the necessary skills the lesson progresses to public roads – initially quiet backstreets and eventually busier roads with more traffic and distractions.

Driving lessons for nervous and older drivers

Nervous & older drivers

One of Trent’s specialties is working with nervous drivers including those learning to drive a little later in life or perhaps wanting to refresh their driving skills after taking a break from being behind the wheel.  Trent takes an empathetic and caring approach and starts by asking the student what they want to achieve.

Tip 1 : Getting your learners license

Northern Beaches Driving Lessons

To get your learner licence you must:

  • Pay the license and test fees (unless you’re eligible for a concession)

Tip 2 : What is the driver knowledge test?

Northern Beaches Driving Lessons

The DKT is a computer-based road rules knowledge test. You have to answer 45 questions.

A test fee of $24 is payable each time you attempt the test.  A replacement learner license fee is $22.

The computer selects the questions at random from a question bank of more than 600 questions.

There are specific tests for each class of licence:

  • Car (class C)
  • Rider (class R)
  • Rigid heavy vehicle (classes LR, MR and HR)
  • Combination heavy vehicle (classes HC and MC).

In the first part of the test, you’ll be asked 15 general knowledge questions, and you need to get at least 12 correct. You’ll then be asked 30 road safety questions (including traffic signs), and you need to get at least 29 correct.

If you get four questions wrong in the general knowledge section, or two wrong in the road safety section, the test will be automatically terminated.

There’s no time limit for completing the test – take your time to carefully read and consider each question.

Tip 3 : Rules for learner drivers

Northern Beaches Driving Lessons

In addition to complying with the NSW Road Rules, you must:

  • Only drive cars
  • Be supervised at all times by the holder of a full (not learner or provisional) Australian driver licence
  • Have L plates displayed (black L on an orange/yellow background) clearly at the front and back of the vehicle, on the outside (or an L sign on the roof) when driving. The letter L on the plate must not be hidden
  • Observe a maximum speed limit of 90 km/h, and observe the posted speed limit where it is below 90km/h
  • Not tow any other vehicle
  • Not exceed zero blood alcohol concentration. This means you cannot have any alcohol in your system when you drive a vehicle. It is also illegal to drive under the influence of drugs
  • Not supervise another learner driver
  • Only carry the number of passengers that can be properly seated in seats and restrained by approved seat belts or child restraints
  • Only drive vehicles that have a seat belt fitted to the driver’s position, and you mustwear the seat belt
  • Not use any mobile phone, including hands-free devices or loud speaker, while driving, or while your vehicle is stopped, but not parked.
  • If in Sydney, not drive in Parramatta Park or Centennial Park.

Failure to comply is an offence and carries heavy penalties, including loss of licence.
