How to Get your Learner Licence in Queensland

Written by Ross Mcleod

Here in Queensland, you can learn to drive once you’ve turned 16. Happy Birthday, and let’s get started!

What is the Learner Licence?

If you’re 16 or older, you can apply for a Learner Licence to drive a car. Once you have it, you can learn to drive a car only under supervision. Your supervisor must have a current, valid open licence which they’ve held for at least one year. A supervisor can be a parent, a friend of the family, or even a driving school, like Cairns Car School. You must acquire 100 hours of driving within 12 months. These hours must be recorded in your Learner Logbook, and must include 10 hours of night driving in order to progress to your Provisional 1 licence. If you choose to learn from a Queensland-accredited driving school, 10 hours will equal 30 hours on your logbook. Cairns Car School also offers night lessons, so you can easily acquire those night driving hours!

Many learners, and their parents, prefer to use a driving school for their solid coverage of the foundation habits for driving. Here at Cairns Car School, we focus on providing great foundational training in a light, fun environment. We want you to be as comfortable as possible so all that great knowledge will sink in and stay with you for life!
