Book your probationary licence test
– 12 months in the period immediately before applying for a driver licence if you are under 21 years
– 6 months in the period immediately before applying for a driver licence if you are over 21 years but under 25 years
– 3 months in the period immediately before applying for a driver licence if you are
25 years or over.
These period may be reduced if you are the holder of a motorcycle licence or permit and have held this for 12 or more months.
- Not be disqualified from driving in Victoria, in Australia or oversea
- Pass a computerised hazard Perception Test and then pass the driving test.
Continuous period means that the permit must not have been broken by a suspension, cancellation or a break in continuity such as allowing the permit to expire before regaining a new permit.
- If you are under 21 years when you apply for a probationary licence, you mustproduce evidence of having completed 120 hours of supervised driving (including at least 10 hours at night) by presenting the Learner Log Book:
– All necessary details must be completed and each entry signed.

supervising driver. The List of Supervising Drivers must be completed and signed
by all supervising drivers.

An incomplete or incorrect Learner Log Book will not be accepted. You will not be able to take your driving test, all your fees will be forfeited, and you cannot take your test for six weeks.
There are serious consequences if entries in the Learner Log Book are found to be incomplete or incorrect. You will lose your booking and test fees, and be prevented from taking the probationary licence test for at least six weeks. You may also be liable to penslties under the Road Safety Act 1986.
