Learner drivers - overview
This section will provide you with everything you need to know about getting your licence.
Before you can get behind the wheel you need to learn the road rules and get your Class C learner's permit. To apply for your learner's permit in Western Australia you must be at least 16-years-of-age.
We can provide you with information on the steps involved in getting your learner's permit and the skills you need to prepare for your practical driving assessment. Read more about our tips for learner drivers.
