How to get driver’s licence in Victoria
Victoria has a Graduated Licensing Scheme that involves licensing stages that vary depending on your age during completion.
From age 16 you are eligible to commence the process by attempting a 32-question, multiple-choice Learner Permit test that assesses road safety and low-risk driving. Passing provides a learner permit valid for 10 years.
Learners under 21 must hold this permit for at least 12 months and record 120 supervised driving hours before progressing. From 17 years 11 months old, learners can complete the Hazard Perception Test. From 18 years old and when eligible, learner drivers can attempt a practical Drive Test to ensure they can drive independently. Passing provides a probationary P1 license (red Ps). The Hazard Perception Test must be completed before the Drive Test.
Learners over 21 must hold a learner permit at least 6 months (reduced to 3 months if over 25) and do not have a supervised hour requirement and can progress when they feel ready. They too must complete the Hazard Perception Test and then the Drive Test. When they pass both they are issued a probationary P2 license (green Ps).
With all the tests complete, all that is required to continue progressing through the scheme is a good driving record. Drivers automatically progress from a probationary P1 license (red Ps) to a probationary P2 license (green Ps) after 12 months with a good driving record. The probationary P2 license (green Ps) must be held for 3 years and if a good driving record is maintained, drivers automatically progress to a full licence.
