Changes to the Graduated Licensing System for drivers

A safer start for new drivers

Too many young Tasmanians are being killed or seriously injured on our roads.  The Tasmanian Government is committed to saving young lives.

That’s why we’re improving Tasmania’s Graduated Licensing System.  Drivers are most at risk when they first get their Ps and start driving solo.  The new system will help reduce the risk.

Young drivers will have more on-road driving experience and skills to keep them and their passengers safe.

These changes will help protect our young drivers, and improve our licensing system.
