Learner Driver Drive Whilst Unaccompanied VIC

A learner's permit is issued to a novice driver. It is valid for ten years or until such time that the novice driver is qualified for a driver's license. The permit gives the novice driver the authority to drive provided that he does so accompanied by a qualified driver.

To be able to qualify for a learner's permit the applicant must be at least 16 years old and must have passed the car learner permit test. The accompanying driver must be holder of a Victorian full driver's license which authorizes that person to drive the motor vehicle. The blood alcohol concentration of the accompanying driver must be below 0.05%.

It is prohibited for a learner to driver without a qualified driver. A learner cannot practice driving without the accompanying driver. Violations of this condition may result to imposition of fines, demerit points, suspension or cancellation of license.

Traffic offences are considered "Major Offences" under the law and thus attract heavy fines, periods of licence disqualification and possibly terms of imprisonment. If you have been charged with a traffic offence or are under Police investigation, it is important that you seek legal advice.
