Apply for a learner's permit

You must obtain a learner's permit before you can become a fully licensed driver. A learner's permit is valid for 2 years.

Whether you choose to do the theory test online or in person, you'll need to attend a Service SA centre to show evidence of identity and get set up with a photo for your learner's permit card.

Choose from the options to find out what you'll need to do.
