Book Your Practical Driving Test

When you feel as though you are ready, discuss your progress with your Driving Instructor and have them make a forward booking at one of our Testing Centres. We can make this booking on your behalf. Prior to sitting the practical test:

  • You must be at least 17 years old
  • Have your log book checked and APPROVED by Queensland Transport
  • You can adjust your training as the date of your test gets closer and it can be put back if you are not progressing as expected. There may be a 4-5 week waiting period for a test so plan in advance.

Rightway Driving School offer a pre-licence test lesson, just to check if you are really ready. Make sure you take advantage of this lesson, we find it gives our students the confidence they need to pass the driving test the first time.

Obtain Your QLD Learners Permit

To apply for a Queensland Learners licence, you will need to be at least 16 years of age and attend a QLD Transport Customer Service Centre to do the following:

  • Complete a drivers licence application

Pass Your Practical Driving Test
If you are using our services to assist you to pass your driving test, your Driving Instructor will pick you up one hour prior to your test on the day for a warm up and final briefing on what to expect during your test. Your Instructor will have completed the paper work in advance to make things easier for you. 
  • You will go for the test in the Driving Instructor’s vehicle, with an inspector from Queensland Transport.
  • Your Instructor will not come in the vehicle and will wait for you at the testing centre.
  • Once you have completed the test the Inspector will debrief you on how you performed and inform you of the result.
  • When you pass, you will then go inside and collect your licence.
In the event that you are not successful on the day we encourage you to book the next test ASAP. Adhere to the conditions of your Provisional licence www.transport.qld.gov.au

Practice With Parents Or Friends

At Rightway Driving we recommend that you have as much practice as possible, as it will make you feel more confident when you get out on the road.

It is a legal requirement in Queensland that you have 100 hours “experience” behind the wheel recorded in your official log book, prior to sitting for your practical test. This should be seen as the minimum.

The more practice you get, the better driver you will be. But make sure you are getting the right practice. Ensure you book in for one of the free Keys2Drive Government funded driving lessons. These lessons are a great idea for both you and the parent who will be sitting in the passenger seat.

Please Note – 10 Hours With A Qualified Driving Instructor Will Count For 30 Hours Towards Your 100 Hours Logbook Requirement. Checkout our package deals which save you money!
