Where’s the nearest office where I can apply for my Victoria learner permit?
What are some ways I can contact my local VicRoads office?VicRoads office can be reached on 13 11 71 or online on https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/contact-us. You can also see a map of local offices at https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/contact-us/officelocations.
Can my parents or someone else come with me when I take my Victoria learner permit knowledge test?Sure, you’re welcome to bring whoever you’d like! But there aren’t any requirements about bringing anyone.
Will I receive a physical examination when I get a learner permit in Victoria?No, but you will be expected to fill out reports for any medical conditions you have that you think could have an effect on your driving ability.
Will I be taking a vision exam when I apply for my learner permit in Victoria?Yes, you’ll have to take a vision test before you can start driving. You’ll have to prove that your visual acuity is at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) on the Snellen scale. Si if you wear glasses or contact lenses, you can (and should) wear them for this exam.
Which places can take my photo for a Victoria learner permit or driver licence?Most VicRoads offices can take your photo when you receive your permit or licence - but you can also get your photo taken at any shop that takes passport photos. Just tell them you want a driver licence photo, and they’ll know how to make sure it meets all the requirements.
Should I avoid certain colors or clothing styles in my photo?No, you can wear any clothing you like! Just wear something you’d wear on a normal day.
Will I have to pull back my hair for my photo?Only if it covers your eyes or face. The point of this photo is to be able to identify you, so it needs to show your entire face clearly.
Will I be allowed to wear makeup for my photo?Sure! In fact, you can (and should) wear whatever type of makeup you’d wear on a usual day, since the idea of this photo is to make you easy to identify.
Can I smile in my photo?No, VicRoads doesn’t want any facial expression at all in your photo. This makes it easier to make sure the person in the photo is actually you.
Any other tips for making sure my photo turns out looking nice?Not really - just look straight-on into the camera and do your best to look relaxed.
I’ve started the application process for my Victoria learner permit. What’s my next step?The next step is to book an appointment to take your learner permit knowledge test. After you’ve passed that test, you’ll be issued a learner permit, which will be valid for 12 months. As long as you’re driving on a permit rather than a full licence, you must:
- carry your learner permit card or receipt at all times while driving
- display ‘L’ plates on the front and rear of the vehicle, visible from a distance of 20 metres
- be accompanied by an experienced driver holding a full (not probationary) driver licence at all times while driving
- keep a zero Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) at all times while driving
- not use a mobile phone, including hands free, hand held and any messaging while driving
- not tow a trailer or vehicle
