Apply for learner logbook exemption

About this service

This service allows you to apply for an exemption from the requirement to complete and record 100 hours of supervised driving experience to be eligible to apply for a P1 licence. A fee of $48.10 applies to submit this application.

If an exemption is granted, you will need to hold your learner licence for 2 years. 


To be eligible for a learner logbook exemption you must hold a learner licence, be under 25 and be able to prove that
  • no car is reasonably available to you to learn to drive
  • no supervisor is reasonably available to supervise your driving
  • the road network where you live is significantly limited

For more information on applying for this exemption, see the Exemption from Learner Logbook Requirements information sheet.

What you need

If you have no car or supervisor available to you, you will need to attach a signed statement from a supporting person, such as an immediate family member, carer or guardian, confirming the circumstances that prevent you from completing the 100 hours of supervised driving experience.

Make sure the supporting statement is signed to avoid delays in processing your application.

Assessing the application

Your application will not be assessed immediately. It may take up to 28 days for you to be advised of the outcome.
