In order to get a Learner’s Permit you must do the following:
** Buy a Road Code Book from any LTA office and study it. It costs $10.00.
** When you feel you know the road code you can now apply for a learner’s permit test, pay $10 and produce an original birth certificate, or passport and two passport size photographs.
** You will be guided to a DKTS Set-Up which is equivalent to the ONLINE PRATICE TEST Set-Up, for your Learners Permit Examination.
** If you pass, that is you have answered 26 of the thirty questions correctly, you will then have to take the test score sheet with your application form, and pay $7 for the issue of your Learner’s Permit.
** You will then be issued a Learner’s Permit. You must be 16 and a-half years old to be eligible to apply for a learner’s permit. You can only apply for a road test when you are 17 years old.
** Your learner’s permit is valid for one year and enables you to be road tested twice. If you have not been road tested in that one year you can apply in writing to the Authority for an extension of your learner’s permit. You will have to pay $7 for the reissue of a new permit.
Using your L plates
Every person/learner who has acquired a Learner’s Permit is required to show a “L” plate infront and at the back of the vehicle that the learner is using to practice his/her driving.
Displaying the “L” plates will ensure other vehicles on the road are aware that the vehicle is being used for learning and courtesy will be shown.
Getting your “P”
Once a learner has successfully passed his/her driving test, a Provisional License will be issued to the learner. The Provisional License is valid for two (2) years.
During the Provisional License term, the driver is required to display a “P” sticker infront and at the back of his/her vehicle.
Get your Full License
After a driver has completed his/her two (2) year provisional term, the driver will be required to attend a Defensive Driving Course in order to obtain a full driving license.
