You must be at least 17 years of age and have held a learner licence for a minimum of 6 months before being able to obtain a provisional driver licence.
There are two methods you can use to get your provisional driver licence:
You will be on a provisional driver licence for 3 years and must display a 'P' plate for this period - unless you take the optional Road Ready Plus (P..off) course after six months or more on a provisional driver licence.
During the 3 year provisional licence period your Alcohol Concentration (BAC) must be zero. So do not drink alcohol if you are intending to drive.
