New South Wales: How to obtain your first driver’s license
It’s time to start the process. We’ll break down the application process to help you understand it. It can be a costly and lengthy process to get your NSW driver’s license! You will need to take a Drivers’ Knowledge Test and have your eyes tested before you are allowed on the road!
Get your NSW driver’s license – Official Graduated Licensing Scheme.
Sincerity, the whole process appears very complex to other countries in the world. You can only get your NSW Driver’s License in New South Wales through the NSW Graduated Licensing Scheme.
What is the Graduated License Scheme?
You must follow the (GLS), or Graduated Licensing Scheme, to obtain a full license. The process begins with a provisional license and takes you through a series of tests and stages before obtaining a full license in NSW.
The high number of accidents in NSW involving learner drivers who were inexperienced made this process more difficult. For novice drivers, the first six months when driving alone are the most dangerous. P1 drivers, for example, are ten times more likely to have a crash than learners. Since its introduction, the number of young motorists killed on New South Wales’ roads has decreased by 50%.
How do I get my NSW Driver’s Licence now that we understand the GLS scheme?
NSW Driving Licence Overview: From a learner’s license to a full license

Stage 1 – Pass the Driver Knowledge Test
To get your learner’s license, you will need to pass the Driver Knowledge Test.
Stage two (if you are under 25): 120 hours of driving experience supervised
You will need to log 120 hours of supervised driving before you can take your driving test. Before you can take the driving test, you will need to show proof of these hours. Before you can move on to the third stage, the Hazard Perception Test, you will need to have held your learner’s license for a minimum of ten (10) months.
If you are over 25 years of age, you may skip this section.
Take the Hazard Perception Test
The third stage is the Hazard Perception Test. This is a computerized touch-screen exam that tests your ability to recognize potentially dangerous situations and respond accordingly.
Notes for those under 25: You must hold your learner’s license for a minimum of twelve (12) months and complete one hundred twenty (120), including twenty (20) hours of night driving, before you can move to the next level.
Notes for those over 25: After passing the HPT, you can proceed to the next level.

The fourth stage is the actual booking and passing of your driving test for your P1 (red). Before you can move on to the next level, you will need to have held your P1 license for at least 12 months.
Upgrade to NSW P2 (green Licence) at Stage Five.
You can apply for the NSW P2 (green Licence) after you have held the P1 license for at least 12 months. After obtaining your P2 license, you will have to wait at least 24 months to progress to stage 6.
Note: Drivers/provisional P2 license holders who are suspended for unsafe driving behavior must hold their P2 driver’s Licence for six (6) additional months for each suspension received during the P2 process
Stage 6 – Apply for a full, unrestricted NSW Drivers Licence.
