The Learner Permit Test Online

The Learner Permit Test Online is an engaging 4–6-hour interactive course covering road rules in Victoria and the development of safe driving skills. The initial attempt at the online test is complimentary. To progress to the learner permit application stage, you must successfully complete the final assessment at the course’s conclusion.

Enrolment in the online course is permissible at 15 years and 11 months of age. However, issuance of the learner permit occurs only when you turn 16 or older. Currently, the online course is available exclusively in English. If you require interpreter services, arrangements can be made to take the Learner Permit Test In-person at a VicRoads Customer Service Centre.

The Learner Permit Test In-Person

Opting for the Learner Permit Test In-person involves scheduling an appointment to visit a VicRoads Customer Service Centre for the examination. This choice is suitable if:

  • You speak a language other than English and need an interpreter.
  • Lack access to a computer or the internet.
  • Experience hearing or vision impairments.
  • Prefer an in-person testing environment.

Interpreter services are available in various languages, including Albanian, Arabic, Cambodian, Chinese (Mandarin), English, Macedonian, Persian, Russian, Serbian, Sinhalese, Somali, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
