About Learning to Drive (4)
You must hold your learner licence for one year before you can sit your driving test.
You can submit your log book as soon as you turn 17. If you have a driving test booked for less than two weeks after your 17th birthday, many Customer Service Centres for Transport and Main Roads will accept your log book directly if you submit it there on or after your 17th birthday.
The decision to work towards either an automatic or manual licence is very much up to the individual. Achieving a manual licence will very often require a greater investment of time and energy to learn. However, you are then able to drive both automatic and manual cars in the future. Maybe a job prospect could hinge on whether or not you have a manual licence.
Alternatively, an automatic licence can often be a cheaper, less stressful option and if you are certain that you will only ever want to drive automatic cars, then choosing this pathway makes sense.
Remember, you can upgrade from an automatic licence to a manual one at a later stage. However, it does require you to re-sit your driving test.
