Driving tests

Can you drive at night on a learner licence?

You can drive a car or van at any time of the day or night as long as you have a supervisor and are displaying L plates front and rear.

If you are a motorcyclist you must not ride between 10pm and 5am on either a learner or restricted licence.

When you get a restricted class 1 car licence you will not be able to drive on your own between 10pm and 5am; if you have a supervisor you can drive at any time of the day or night.

If you are on private land you can drive during the day or night without a supervisor.
