An example of a Non-novice Learner is a client who applies for a learner licence after having a Tasmanian licence expired for more than 5 years.

Note that drivers can hold more than one licence type and class (for example a full heavy vehicle licence and a novice learner motorcycle licence); as a consequence summing the total column here will not equal the number of current tasmanian drivers.
