Nearly at Ps

Being ready to go for your Ls or Ps is about much more than being able to pass the test.

Licensing assessments are professional and thorough but they are not infallible - it's possible to pass and still not be properly ready for the next stage.

As much as you might want your licence, you really don't want to be unready. We all have a responsibility to other people to be truly capable on the roads.

If you’re preparing to go for your Ls

There are activities you can do from the passenger seat to give yourself a head start on the learning process and make sure you’re prepared when it’s time to get behind the wheel.

For aspiring P-platers

There are a number of things you need to consider to determine if you’re ready for solo driving. In the time it takes to pass your practical driving test, you go from being the statistically one of the safest drivers on the road to one of the most at risk. New drivers are 20 to 30 times more likely to be involved in a crash – defy the statistics by making sure you’re really ready.

Ask your instructor to use the P plate ready indicator instructor tool to test your readiness and give you an idea of which areas might require attention and improvement.
