Getting your licence for the first time can be a very daunting process. At RACT we would like to not only prepare you for your driving test, but also ensure that you learn to drive safely and responsibly.
Q: At what age can I get my car licence?
A: A learner licence can be obtained by sitting a road rules test through the Department of State Growth Transport department. This can be done in Tasmania at the age of 15 years and 11 months, however you are unable to start driving until you turn 16.
Q: I want to get a manual licence but I want to do my L2 assessment in an automatic car. Does this matter?
A: The assessment can be done in automatic or manual vehicle.
Q: Can I use my own vehicle for lessons or assessments?
A: For safety reasons we only use the RACT dual controlled cars for all lessons and assessments.
Q: What do I need to bring along to my lessons or assessments?
A: Students must have their valid drivers licence permit with them for any lesson or assessment.
Q: What if I need to cancel my lesson or assessment?
A: Our cancellation policy states that you must give four hours' notice for any change or cancellation, otherwise you will be charged.
Q: How much does an L2 assessment cost?
A: An L2 assessment costs $130. Should you fail your assessment you will be required to pay the full amount for the additional assessments.
Q: What do I do once I have passed my L2 assessment?
A: You will be provided with some paperwork that will need to be presented at Service Tasmania to enable them to upgrade your licence to the L2 licence. You are unable to start logging your hours until you receive your L2 licence.
Q: Should I fail the L2 assessment is there a waiting period before I can sit the assessments again?
A: Should you fail your assessment, you can rebook for the next available booking.
