Get Learners Drivers License
What are the conditions of a learner licence?
You must have your learner licence with you whenever you are driving.
You must not drive on your own. You must always be accompanied by a supervisor, who must always sit in the front passenger seat beside you.
If you are learning to ride a moped, you must not ride it between 10pm and 5am and you must not carry passengers.
You must display L (learner) plates on the vehicle at all times when you are driving. Failure to display L plates could result in 25 demerit points and a fine of $100.
There's no law stopping you from carrying passengers in your car. However, if you do, your supervisor (who will, of course, be seated next to you in the vehicle) must agree to this. The supervisor is responsible for everyone in the vehicle and for what happens when you're driving.
There is a zero alcohol limit if you are under 20. That means if you drive after consuming even one drink you can be charged with drink driving. If you have an alcohol level of less than 150 micrograms per litre of breath and less than 30 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood you could be fined and given 50 demerit points. If your alcohol level is higher, you could be disqualified from driving, given 50 demerit points and either fined or imprisoned.
If you’re 20 or older, the legal alcohol limit is 250 micrograms per litre of breath or 50 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood. If you have an alcohol level of more than 250 but not more than 400 micrograms per litre of breath, or more than 50 but not more than 80 milligrams per 100 mililitres of blood, you could be fined and given 50 demerit points. If your alcohol level is higher, you could be disqualified from driving and either fined or imprisoned.
Breaching the learner conditions of your driver licence (other than failing to display L plates) could result in you receiving 35 demerit points and a fine of $100. If you breach any other conditions of your driver licence you could receive 25 demerit points and be subject to a fine of $400.
