Before going for your Ls

First, check the licensing requirements in your state or territory to make sure you know what’s required of you and that you’re eligible.

Regardless of where you live, getting your Ls means developing and demonstrating a solid understanding of the road rules in your area.

One of the best ways to learn the road rules is to practise them from the passenger seat – you’ll learn faster in a practical setting and the rules themselves will make more sense when you see them in action. Grab the road rules book for your state or territory and try the activity Practice the road rules to help you accelerate your learning.

You’re not allowed to get behind the wheel before you get your Ls, but there are still lots of things you can do that will help you pass your learner licence test and prepare for L-plate driving.

Have a look at Passenger seat activities for some ideas to help you get a head start on getting your Ls and learning to drive.
