Drive Test

  • The drive test is an on road drive test
  • The practical drive test is conducted after you have passed your hazard perception test. During the test, you will have your Driving School Melbourne instructor accompany you, whilst the Vicroads tester sits in the back seat. You will drive for between 30 to 50 minutes around a pre-determined drive test route near the Vicroads office.

The driving test is split into three Sections:

  • Pre-drive check
  • Residential driving and low speed manoeuvre
  • Busy multiple lane roads and more complex situations

To apply for your licence in Victoria you must be at least 18 years of age and have held your learner permit for a minimum period of time.

There are three steps involved in passing your licence test. You must pass:

  • An eyesight test
  • A hazard perception test
  • A practical driving test

It is recommended that while you are on your learner permit you complete at least 120 hours of driving in all conditions to prepare you for your test and to be a safer driver on our roads.

If you pass your drive test, you will be issued with a probationary drivers licence, which is valid for three years. During this time you will have certain restrictions imposed on you.

Once you have held your probationary licence for the appropriate amount of time, you will progress to a full licence without the need to do any further tests
