Driving License Testing

The Driving Test is an on-road test that assesses your driving skills, decision-making, awareness of other road users, and how you share the road with other traffic. You will drive along a set course and a testing officer scores your driving ability.

Before you go for your driving test, get a copy of:

VIC The driving handbook €˜Road to €˜Driving Solo available from Vic Roads or view Vic Roads Website

Your best source of information is your Northern Driving School Instructor.

Taking a Practice Driving Test with Northern Driving School will help give you information about:

  • The way the licence test is structured.
  • How your driving is assessed.
  • What you will have to do during the test.
  • Pass standards.

The driving test will not be conducted unless you produce your log book showing that you have completed and achieved all the learning goals, including a minimum of 120 hours driving practice, of which 10 hours must be of night driving. Both you and your supervising driver must sign the declaration of completion at the end of the book.

Your P1 licence is valid for 12 months. You must have held your P1 licence for a minimum of 12 months before you can progress to the next licence stage.
