Getting ready for your learner licence?
Before you can apply for a learner licence, you will need to complete PrepL.
PrepL is the online learning and assessment program that teaches the road rules and why they exist. It replaces the written test for getting a learner licence.
You can enrol in PrepL if you are at least 15 years and 11 months old. This will give you time to work through PrepL, so that you will be eligible to get your learner licence on your 16th birthday.
