QLD Learner Licence
In Queensland once you turn 16, you can apply for your learner licence to drive a car. A learner licence allows you to drive a car under supervision. Your supervisor must have held an open licence for at least one year and currently hold an open licence (for example, their licence must not be expired or suspended).
To get your learner licence, you need to pass a written road rules test and be medically fit to drive.
The Written Test
The written test for a car consists of 30 multiple-choice questions about road rules and driver licence requirements. Your keys to driving in Queensland gives you all the information you need to pass the test. You can download the whole guide or just the section that you want. You can also buy the book online or from a customer service centre. You may also be able to buy it from some newsagents in Queensland. You can also prepare for your test by completing the online practice road rules test.
How to Apply
You can apply for a learner licence at:
Gympie Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centre
Floor 1, 50 River Road
Gympie Qld 4570
Phone: 13 23 80
You will need to bring:
- a completed driver licence application form (F3000)
- your evidence of identity
- if needed, a medical certificate from your doctor stating that you are fit to drive
- the written test fee and the licence fee.
If you pass the written road rules test, you will receive your learner licence, a learner’s kit and logbook. If you do not pass the written test, you have to wait until the next working day to take the test again. You must pay the test fee every time you take the test.
When you get your learner licence you will be given a Queensland Learner Logbook and information about how to download the free Queensland Learner Logbook app so you can start recording your driving experience.
Record your logbook hours
If you are under 25 you will need to record at least 100 hours of supervised driving in any of the following:
- your Queensland Learner Logbook app
- your Queensland Learner Logbook (hard copy)
- your RACQ Learn2go app
- an approved interstate learner logbook
- or a combination of the above methods.
You don’t need to duplicate your trip recordings in the hard copy logbook if you are using an app. Find out how to switch to the app from the logbook.
If you are 25 or older, you are not required to complete the learner logbook, however, it is recommended that you do.
For previous, interstate or overseas driving experience find out how to record your hours.
