If you are an L1 licence holder
If you are currently the holder of a Tasmanian L1 licence you will remain on that licence until you have held the licence for a minimum of three continuous months.
If you are not already doing so, you need to record your driving hours in a learner logbook now. This will ensure that you are building up your supervised driving hours in your logbook and are prepared to sit the P1 Driving Assessment once eligible.
Once the three months has passed you can apply to the Department to progress to an L2 licence. Applications can be made online. You will need to provide a brief statement on your practical driving experience as an L1 licence holder.
You will not have to complete an L2 Practical Driving Assessment to progress from an L1 licence to an L2 licence.
You will have to hold an L2 licence for a period of nine continuous months before you can attempt a P1 Practical Driving Assessment.
Before attempting a P1 Practical Driving Assessment it is strongly recommended you log 80 logbook hours (including 15 night-hours) in the combined learner stage (L1 and L2). 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.
