- A written test is done to get the learner’s license; 30 days after the learner’s license was issued you can apply for a driver’s license.
After you have received your learner’s license you have to make sure that you are not given a ticket or you will not be able to get your driver’s license
- After the month has passed you need to go to the RTO or RTA office again and fill the necessary forms
