Getting a licence

The Queensland Government has introduced a graduated licensing system to help reduce fatalities on the roads – particularly among young drivers. The aim of the system is to encourage safer, more proficient drivers and riders.

Queensland's graduated licensing system recognises the need for drivers and riders to hold a particular class of licence for a set period of time before being able to upgrade to the next class of licence.

This arrangement gives learner drivers and riders the opportunity to improve their skills and develop acceptable and safe driving behaviour with a lower class of vehicle before driving or riding more demanding vehicles.
