What it is

What your learner permit allows you to do. 

A learner permit allows you to drive on all public roads, except motorways, for the purposes of learning to drive and only when accompanied by an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) or someone who has held a valid driving licence in the same category for more than two years.  

It also means that you can take Essential Driver Training (EDT) with an ADI, but you must display L-plates at all times on any vehicle you drive. 



To obtain a learner permit you must first prepare for and pass the driver theory test. This test checks your knowledge of the road, driving, and safety-related topics. 


You can apply for your driving test when you hold a learner permit. However, if you are a first-time learner permit holder you must hold your learner permit for six months and complete  Essential Driver Training (EDT) or  Initial Basic Training (IBT) before taking the driving test. 

What you can’t do with your learner permit

As a learner permit holder, you are not permitted to;

  • drive on a motorway in any vehicle category  
  • carry any passenger for reward 
  • drive while towing a trailer if you hold a learner permit in vehicle categories B, C1, C, D1 or D (cars, buses and trucks)  
  • carry a passenger if you hold a learner permit in vehicle categories A1, A2, A and AM (motorcycles or mopeds)  
  • carry a passenger if you hold a learner permit in vehicle category W (work vehicles or land tractors) unless the vehicle is constructed to carry a passenger and the passenger holds a driving licence for a continuous period of two years. 

How long your learner permit is valid for

If you have sat and failed a driving test in the previous two years you will be issued with a two-year learner permit.
