RTA Licence Requirements
To hold a Learners licence in NSW you must be 16 years of age. At the age of 17, so as long as you have held your licence for 12 months minimum and have completed the required 120 hours of driving (100 daylight hours AND 20 nights hours), you can go for your P1 driving test.
Once you are over the age of 25 and hold a NSW learner driving licence, you do not have to complete the 120 hours or 12 month waiting period. However, you must be able to drive to the required standard… remember Bartz Driving School standard is higher!
We have an outstanding first time pass rate as our standard is higher.
Overseas Licence Holders:
You first need to check if you are eligible for a direct change over to a NSW driver’s licence. To check if you are eligible, click here!
You can check whilst on the RTA website what other requirements you may need.
Remember the overseas licensing procedures maybe higher in Australia. If this is the case, you may need some “refresher” lessons to familiarize yourself with the NSW licencing requirements.
Seniors “Refresher” Course:
You may have been driving for many years and settled yourself into a routine whilst behind the wheel. Don’t let complacency be the error of judgement in your driving test as you only get 3 chances. We understand this may be a daunting time for you as your licence is your independence. By doing a lesson or two with John it can improve your chances of passing the AGED driving test.
