Learner driver changes

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

CHANGES will be put in place in Novem­ber this year to en­sure new driv­ers are safe driv­ers on our roads.

Min­is­ter for Roads, Mar­itime and Freight Melinda Pavey has an­nounced ma­jor im­prove­ments to the state’s highly suc­cess­ful Grad­u­ated Li­cens­ing Scheme.

The changes to the Grad­u­ated Li­cens­ing Scheme mean:

Learner driv­ers will have to com­plete the Haz­ard Per­cep­tion Test be­fore they can move on to take the driv­ing test.

P1 driv­ers will no longer have to com­plete the Haz­ard Per­cep­tion Test to get their P2 li­cence.

The Driver Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Test has been re­moved for P2 Driv­ers and in its place P2 driv­ers will have to stay on their li­cence for an ex­tra six months if they re­ceive a suspension for un­safe driv­ing be­hav­iour.

Th­ese changes will come into ef­fect from Novem­ber 20 this year.
