To ensure your safety and that of other road users, learner drivers are bound by certain laws. You can’t be alone in the vehicle when driving, regardless of how long you have been driving and how many learner permits you have held. And the person who’s with you must hold a full driving licence for the category of vehicle you are driving for a continuous period of 2 years.

First-time learner permit holders (in certain categories) must wait six months after the date of issue of the particular licence category before they can sit their driving test. In the past, some people took the test shortly after getting their first learner permit and research has shown that the more practice and experience a person gets, the better a driver they become. It applies to first-time learner permit holders for cars, motorcycles and works vehicles.

Full details of how to apply for your driving test can be found at

Once you have completed your EDT lessons and have satisfied the six-month rule (If applicable), you may apply for your practical Driving Test. The current average waiting time and longest waiting times for applicants at each Test Centre can be viewed at

When you have successfully passed your practical driving test, you may apply for a full Driving Licence. Driving Licences are issued by the National Driver Licence Service. Full details of the application process can be found at

A person granted a first full driving licence on or after 1st August 2014 must display N-plates (Novice Plates) on the vehicle for a period of 2 years. There is no requirement for novice drivers to have an accompanying driver – this is still only the case for learner drivers. However, a novice driver may not act as an accompanying driver for someone who holds a learner permit.
