Driver's licence application

If you are planning to drive for the first time you will need to start with a learner's permit. There are typically three stages through which new drivers pass. They begin by acquiring a learner's permit, progress to a restricted, provisional or probationary license, followed by receipt of a full driver's license. Newly licensed drivers are required by law to display P-plates for varying lengths of time.
