Learner Drivers

Stay up to date on changes for Learner Drivers

Did you know that from 20 November 2017 changes were made to the Graduated Licensing Scheme for learner, P1 and P2 drivers?

The changes impact all stages of the Graduated Licensing Scheme including the:

  • Hazard Perception Test – this is now a requirement for learner drivers to progress to P1 licence (this was previously a requirement to progress from P1 to P2 licence).
  • Driver Qualification Test – this has been scrapped as a requirement for P2 drivers to progress to an unrestricted licence.
  • P2 licence extension for suspended drivers.

As a parent and supervisor of a learner driver, it is important to be aware of these changes to licensing conditions so that you can provide the correct information to your learner driver.

Council is offering a free two-hour Graduated Licensing Scheme workshop at Regis Hall, Regis Campus (Junior Site), St Ignatius' College on Wednesday 7 March from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

This is your opportunity to find out more about these changes as well as how you can best help your learner driver to navigate the Graduated Licensing Scheme.
