Continue to gain experience
Task 1: Gain a minimum of 50 hours of supervised driving experience
You need to record a minimum of 50 supervised driving hours including at least five hours at night (between sunset and sunrise) in your Learner Guide and Log Book.
To gain experience you must:
- Always be accompanied by a supervising driver.
- Abide by the rules for novice drivers.
- Gain extensive on-road driving practice amounting to a minimum of 50 supervised driving hours.
- Include at least five hours at night (between sunset and sunrise)
There are a range of recommended tasks in your Learner Guide and Log Book that will assist you in developing the skills to become a safe solo driver.
You are strongly recommended to complete more than the minimum 50 hours of supervised driving as this will better prepare you for when you can drive on your own.
Record additional supervised driving sessions
If you have filled the record of supervised driving pages of your log book and wish to record additional supervised driving sessions you can download and print the Additional record of supervised driving pages document below.
Note: Please download and print the additional Log Book pages only where the record of supervised driving pages of your issued Learner Guide and Log Book have all been filled and you wish to record additional supervised driving sessions.
You will be required to present these with your Learner Guide and Log Book prior to, or when you attempt your PDA.
