  • Where do I attempt the South Australia Theory Test?

    You can attempt the Theory Test at the following locations:
    • a Service SA Customer Service Centrebetween 9:00 am and 4:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; OR Wednesday between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm (except public holidays).
      • Bookings are essential for tests at metropolitan centres, so call Service SA on 13 10 84 to book your test.
    • most remote country police stations
  • How can I contact my Service SA Customer Service Centre?

    You can find the centre’s address and phone number on the SA Government’s website, or you can call 13 10 84 to book your Theory Test.
  • Can I bring someone with me when I take my South Australia Theory Test?

    Yes, but you’ll be on your own during the actual test. However, you’re welcome to bring anyone you like to the Service Centre with you.
  • Will I receive a physical exam when I apply for my South Australia learner's permit?

    No, but it’s your responsibility to let the government know if you have any medical condition - including an eyesight issue - that may affect your driving ability.
  • Will I receive an eyesight test when I apply for my South Australia learner's permit?

    No, there is no eyesight test that you need to take. However, any illness, disease or disability that could affect your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle must be truthfully declared on the application form. If your only problem is that your eyesight does not meet the minimum standard for a driver’s licence unaided, it will be necessary to have an Eyesight Certificate completed by your doctor, or similar type medical professional, before your permit or licence can be issued. If the doctor states that your eyesight is satisfactory while wearing spectacles or contact lenses, the permit or licence will be endorsed to say that corrective lenses must be worn at all times when driving. A Medical Certificate/Eyesight Certificate is also required if an applicant has had eye surgery or has lost sight in one eye.
  • Will I get my photo taken when I apply for my South Australia learner's permit?

    Yes, after you pass your Theory Test, the office will snap your photo.
  • Should I avoid wearing certain colours when I get my licence photo taken?

    No, there’s no colour you need to avoid! Just wear whatever colours you’d normally wear.
  • Should I pull my hair back when I get my licence photo taken?

    Only if it covers your eyes or face. The purpose of this photo is to make your identity easy to confirm - so your whole face has to be visible in it.
  • Should I avoid wearing makeup for my licence photo?

    Not necessarily! Just wear whatever amount of makeup you’d normally wear.
  • Can I smile in my licence photo?

    No, because the government says facial expressions (or any kind) can make people harder to identify in their photos. As dull as it might sound, you’ll have to keep a totally straight face.
  • What else can I do to make sure I get a nice-looking licence photo?

    Just relax, look straight into the camera, and try not to blink at the flash!
  • I’m ready to get my South Australia learner's permit. What do I do?

    Book your testing appointment at a Service SA Customer Service Centre (or police station, if you live in a remote area) for any time between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; OR Wednesday between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm (except public holidays).
    After you’ve passed your Theory Test, the office will snap your photo, set up your learner's permit, and send you on your way!
