This is consistent with previously announced changes to the eligibility requirements for the P1 Driving Assessment which are expected to be implemented from December 2020.

All new learner licence holders from December will be required to log at least 80 hours, including 15 at night.

The more supervised driving hours you get, the safer you will be when you start driving on your own.

To help get the 80 hours in the learner stage, you will be able to:

  • attend a Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) program and gain five hours for your learner logbook; and
  • get a one hour lesson with a certified driving instructor and gain two hours for your learner logbook. This is capped at 10 lessons.

If you are currently the holder of a Tasmanian L2 licence you will continue with your existing licence process. This means you will need to hold the licence for a minimum of nine continuous months and log at least 50 compulsory logbook hours in the L2 stage.
