Graduated Licensing Scheme NSW

Jun 29, 2019 by

Driving is an essential skill for everyday life. A day without driving in modern life is almost impossible. Whether you know driving or not, some part of your daily life will pass through this skill. Some people can drive well, some others can’t. Many people get nervous at driving seat. Some people become uncomfortable at busy traffic, high speed zones or high-density population areas. It doesn’t mean they have psychological disorder. It only means that they have lack of confidence in a specific job like driving. One reason of such condition might be the fact that the person on driving seat doesn’t practice on road in a proper way. Another reason might be the person went through some kind of adverse situation which formed a “driving phobia” in him. Whatever the reason is, the only way to overcome such situation is practice.

New South Wales RMS has Graduated Licensing Scheme that helps students to gain enough experience to drive safely. This process takes 4 years for young drivers under 25. It consists of 4 stages of license type – Learner (L), Provisional 1 Red (P1), Provisional 2 Green (P2) and Unrestricted License. Learner license can be obtained after passing Driving Knowledge Test (DKT), a computer-based test taken at RMS. If you are under 25, you need to hold the L for at least 1 year and complete 120 hours including 20 hours of night driving. It doesn’t apply to you if you are over 25. After holding the L for minimum 10 months, you need to pass Hazard Perception Test (HPT), again another computer-based test before going for on road driving test. Over 25 drivers are not required to wait for 10 months before HPT. Once you pass the driving test, you get P1 license. All drivers with P1 need to wait another 1 year before graduating to P2. Once you get your P2, you need to wait for another 2 years to apply for Unrestricted License. A research shows that P1 and P2 drivers (only 8% of total NSW drivers) have the highest record of accidents. The four years licensing scheme gives young drivers an opportunity to learn on road skills to drive safe.
