Getting a car driver licence
Queensland has a driver licensing system that encourages safe driving. Safe driving will reduce road crashes.
The 4 licence stages are:
- Learner licence
- P1 licence
- P2 licence
- Open licence
The first stage in the Graduated Licensing System is to get a learner licence. Once you have held a learner licence for at least 12 months, accumulated 100 hours of on road driving experience and passed a Q-Safe test you can progress to a provisional licence.
This system allows novice drivers to gain more experience and improve their overall driving skills before they are allowed to upgrade to a higher type or class of licence.
