Expired Interstate Licence

Changing to an ACT Licence:

A learner licence is not directly transferable from interstate.

However, if you are 17 years of age, have a current interstate learner licence and have held a learner licence for at least six (6) months, you are permitted however to one (1) practical driver assessment with an ACT Government licence examiner.

If the learner licence is not current or if you fail the assessment you will be required to undertake and pass the Road Ready course and knowledge test and obtain an ACT learner licence.


A: To book a driver assessment, contact one of the Access Canberra Service Centres and book a practical driving test. The  test can be booked at any location or over the phone but the driving test is only conducted and completed at the Dickson Motor Registry or the Tuggeranong Service Centre.

A: If you have failed the practical assessment you must obtain a learner licence through the normal channel. Please see our learner licence page.

A: If you are issued with a learner licence after 1 January 2020, in order to be eligible for a provisional licence in the ACT, you must:

  • be at least 17 years old;

  • have completed the minimum number of required driving hours;
  • have successfully completed the Hazard Perception Test (HPT);
