The course is available during the day, in the evenings and at weekends. To make a booking, telephone Watson (north) 6162 5152 or Phillip (south) 6282 8990, or go to www.roadready.act.gov.au for more information.
  • How can I sign up to take my ACT Road Rules Knowledge Test?

    The Road Rules Knowledge Test will happen automatically at the end of your Road Ready Course. Don’t forget to bring your passed ACT Road Rules Knowledge Test certificate to a Canberra Connect Shopfront or the Civic Driver Licence Service to get your learner licence.
  • How can I contact the nearest Canberra Connect Shopfront or ACT Civic Driver Licence Service?

    You can find contact info for any Canberra Connect Shopfront or Civic Driver Licence Service on the websites of these organisations.
  • Will I receive a physical exam when I apply for my Australia Capital Territory learner licence?

    No, but you are responsible for alerting the government about any medical issue - including an eyesight issue - that could have an impact on your ability to drive.
  • Will I receive an eyesight test when I apply for my Australia Capital Territory learner licence?

    Yes, you’ll have to prove that your visual acuity is at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) on the Snellen scale. So don’t forget those glasses or contacts!
  • Will I get my photo taken when I apply for my Australia Capital Territory learner licence?

    Yes, once your application is approved, the office will take your photo for your learner licence.
  • Should I avoid wearing certain colours when I get my licence photo taken?

    No, you don’t need to worry about avoiding any particular colour. Just wear whatever colours you usually would!
  • Should I pull my hair back when I get my licence photo taken?

    Only if it covers any of your eyes or your face. Your whole face needs to be clearly visible in your licence photo, because it’s going to serve as proof of your identity.
  • Should I avoid wearing makeup for my licence photo?

    No, you can feel free to wear any makeup you usually would!
  • Can I smile in my licence photo?

    No, because your face will be easiest to identify in the photo if you have a straight face in it. It’s not much fun, true - but it’s very important for making you easy to identify from your licence photo.
  • What else can I do to make sure I get a nice-looking licence photo?

    Just try not to blink! Keep a calm and relaxed face, and look straight into the camera.
  • I’m ready to get my Australia Capital Territory learner licence. What do I do?

    Have you passed your Road Ready Course and ACT Road Rules Knowledge Test? If not, then your first step is to complete those. To make a booking for a Road Ready Course, telephone Watson (north) 6162 5152 or Phillip (south) 6282 8990, or go to www.roadready.act.gov.au for more information.

    Once you’ve passed the course and test, bring your passed ACT Road Rules Knowledge Test certificate to a Canberra Connect Shopfront or the Civic Driver Licence Service to apply for your learner licence.

    After the office has processed your application - and given you a simple eyesight test - they’ll snap your photo, give you a temporary learner licence, and send you on your way!
