Northern Beaches Driving Lessons

To get your learner licence you must:

  • Be at least 16 years of age
  • Pass a driver knowledge test (DKT)
  • Prove your identity
  • Pass an eyesight test
  • Pay the license and test fees (unless you’re eligible for a concession)

Once you pay the required fees and pass the DKT, your photo will be taken. Depending on which location you attend, your licence card will either be handed over the counter or posted to you. If it’s posted, you’ll receive a temporary paper licence, which you can use to learn to drive, until your new card arrives.

Your learner licence is valid for five years. If you have not progressed to a P1 licence at the end of the five years, you can renew your licence, but you will need to pass the DKT again.

When you are issued with your learner licence, you will also receive a learner driver log book.
