How to Get Learner Driving License in Sydney

Learner driver license

If you’re 16 or over, you can apply for a learner driver license. Follow these steps to get your Ls.

Check your eligibility

To get your NSW learner driver license, you must

Be 16 or over

Prove your identity

Pass an eyesight test

Pass the Driver Knowledge Test (DKT).

The Driver Knowledge Test is a computer-based test held at service centres around NSW.

Everything you need to know before you take the test is in the Road User Handbook. Make sure you study the handbook and know the rules.

You can use our free practice tests launch to get familiar with the test questions.

On the day of the test

On the day of your test booking, travel to your nominated service centre and bring:

Proof of identity

Glasses or contacts, if you need them to see well.

After you pass

After you pass your test, an attendant at the testing centre will take your photo for your licence card.

We’ll post your licence to you if it’s not given to you on the day. In this case, you’ll receive a temporary paper licence, which you can use until your new licence card arrives.

You can also choose to get a digital licence

Learner Driver Log Book

You’ll be given a paper log book to use to record your supervised driving experience while you’re on your learner licence.

You can also choose to use a log book app, if you prefer.

Learner driver rules

Like other drivers, learners must follow the NSW road rules. There are also some special conditions that apply to learner drivers.

These conditions are designed to keep you safe while you’re building your driving skills and experience.

What you must do

Learners must have a supervisor present when driving. The supervisor must hold a full Australian driver licence and sit next to the learner.

Learners can drive with passengers in the car. If you’re driving with passengers, you must ensure these passengers all sit in seats with seat belts or child restraints.

Learners must only drive vehicles that have a seat belt fitted to the driver’s seat, and you must wear the seat belt.

When driving, learners must display L plates clearly on the front and back of the car. The plates must be on the outside, or there must be an L sign on the roof. The letter L on the plate must not be hidden. So your plates do not fall off, secure them with a clip or holder.

Learners must only drive cars.

What you must not do

Learner must never drive without a supervisor sitting in the seat next to them.

Learners must never drive above 90km/h.

Do not use any mobile phone while driving, or while your vehicle is stopped but not parked. This includes hands-free devices or loud speakers.

Learners must not tow any other vehicle.

Learners must not have any alcohol in their system when driving. It is also illegal to drive under the influence of drugs.

If in Sydney, do not drive in Parramatta Park, Moore Park or Centennial Park.

You must comply with these learner driver restrictions when you are driving outside NSW. You should also find out about any driving laws that may apply to you while in another jurisdiction.

Failure to comply with these rules is an offence. This can carry heavy penalties, including the loss of your licence.

Demerit points apply to learner drivers. If you reach or exceed 4 demerit points in a 3-year period, your learner license will be suspended or disqualified. For more see Learner and provisional driver demerit points
