Learning to drive is a big deal.
Once you turn 16, you can apply for your learner’s licence to drive a car.
A learner’s 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).
Being able to drive helps you get a job, makes getting to places easier, and just helps you feel free.
But it can also be dangerous if you are not careful and drive safely on the roads.
The freedom with having a drivers licence also comes with responsibilities and costs, such as annual registration and insurance fees, so make sure you sit down and plan all the costs involved before you start.
You can check online at your states road office for all the details for what you need to do to gain both your L’s and P’s. We have listed all the state websites.
