Getting a full licence

Email this article to a friend
If you’ve had your P2 licence for at least 24 months then you may be able to go for your full licence.

P2 drivers no longer have to pass a test to progress through to a full licence.

Most P2 drivers will be able to upgrade to a full licence after 24 months. This is as long as you have not been suspended for unsafe driving behaviour sometime during that 24 month period. P2 drivers who receive a suspension for unsafe driving behaviour must stay on their P2 licence for an extra 6 months for every suspension they receive for unsafe driving behaviour.

For example, if a P2 licence holder gets suspended for going over their demerit points limit, they'll have to stay on their P2 licence for the normal 24 months, plus an extra 6 months, before being able to apply for a full licence.
