The Online Provisional Permit System is an online portal that allows persons wishing to apply for a provisional permit to do so online, at their convenience. The system captures all required information such as an applicant’s bio data, supporting documents and photograph. Online applications are then reviewed and processed by licensing office staff.
A provisional permit (also known as a learner’s permit) is a document issued by the Licensing Authority granting a qualified person the ability to practice driving for a particular vehicle classification. Provisional permits are valid for a period of one year and can only be used in specific circumstances, which are detailed on the back of the permit.
An endorsement is considered to be any additional vehicle class that is subsequently added to a person’s driver’s licence after its initial issuance.
First time drivers can apply for either: Class 1 (motor cycle), Class 2 (wheel tractor) or Class 3 (light motor vehicle).
Contact your preferred licensing office for more information.
