Throughout the year, I constantly get questions from parents, supervising drivers and from learners asking,”Can I do that when learning to drive?” These are all reasonable questions so, for my January blog,I thought I would answer some of them. Still don’t see your question answered? Send me an email via the website and I will answer it for you.
Unfortunately, you cannot drive. The only way you can continue to drive as a learner driver is by going into a Vic Roads service centre and pay for a replacement. You cannot use a receipt from a phone or online replacement purchase. You will be issued with a paper replacement in the meantime until your new licence card arrives. The cost would be $24.00. A good way to always remember it is to just leave it in your wallet or purse. You don’t need to remove it from these to drive.
No, you observe the signed speed limits. As a Victorian learner, you are permitted to follow speed limits just like in Victoria. For example, in NSW, learners and P plates are restricted to 90 km/h, but a Victorian learner and driver in NSW can do the speed that is signed, say 100 on freeways.
So, there you have it. I hope I’ve been able to allay some fears going forward into the new year. If you have any further questions that you cannot find under the FAQ section of my website, drop me a line at the bottom of this blog and I will clarify whatever it is.
If you’re lucky enough to be on holidays at the moment, enjoy. If not, that’s ok too. Some of us have to keep the wheels turning in life.
Until next time, Happy New Year, Sarah
