Getting Started


Learner Licence

Once you turn 16, you can apply for your learner licence to drive a car.

A learner licence allows you to drive a car under supervision. Your supervisor must have held an open licence for at least one year and currently hold an open licence (for example, their licence must not be expired or suspended).

To get your learner licence, you need to pass a written road rules test and be medically fit to drive.

Written Test

The written test for a car consists of 30 multiple-choice questions about road rules and driver licence requirements.

Your keys to driving in Queensland  guide gives you all the information you need to pass the test.

You can also prepare for your test by completing the online practice road rules test.

Get your ‘L’ Plates

Once you have passed your written test and have got your learners permit you will need to display L Plates on the front and rear of the car you will be learning in.
