There are three licensing stages you must progress through in Australia before obtaining a full unrestricted license with each coming with a cost. Refer to our blog article on How to get your driving license in NSW to for more information on each of the licensing stage requirements.
The tables below break down the various costs for a new driver to progress from the learner license to a full license.
Currently, on average the cost to get your full license is ~$1,450.
This cost includes the use of a driving school for a structured 10 hours lessons package, as 10 hours of lessons with a certified instructor provides 30 hours in the logbook. A Safer Drivers course which is a 5-hour course provides 20 hours in the logbook including a final lesson with the presentation to RMS driving test. More info on the Safer Drivers Course and the various types of Logbooks you can use to track your hours, here.
If you are unsure whether you should spend money on driving school lessons, the government provides a free 1-hour lesson through the Keys2drive Program, which is a driving lesson at an accredited driving school where you come with your parents and learn about road safety, as well as the tools your parents will need when they supervise you on the road to help you become a safe and experienced driver, more information here.
