COVID-19 safety requirements

Follow all safety instructions when you visit a service centre including physical distancing signs and instructions.

When you go to a driver or rider licence test you:

  • must wear a face mask
  • must have evidence to show that you either:
    • are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (have received 2 doses of the vaccine) or
    • have a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a sample taken within the 3 days before your driver or rider licence test.

All driving testers are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and will wear a face mask during your test.

Evidence of overseas vaccinations

If you’ve received an approved COVID-19 vaccine while overseas, you can have it recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) as evidence of vaccination. For more information, visit Services Australia.

Vaccination requirements for council agencies

You must wear a face mask and be fully vaccinated to visit or take a driving test at a service centre located at a local council.

Find out about the COVID-19 digital certificate (proof of COVID-19 vaccinations).

Booking an appointment

You can book online if you are ready to take your:

  • driver/rider knowledge test
  • hazard perception test
  • driving practical test.

There is currently a high demand for driver testing and limited availability. 

Bookings are open for the next 4 weeks at any time and updated weekly. All available appointments are published in the booking system. The contact centre cannot provide any other appointment options.

To select a different time or date, choose another service centre near you or check again in a few days.

We ask for your patience if you do experience a delay in getting a booking date for your test.

If COVID-19 stay-at-home rules apply in your local area, you're permitted to leave your home to take a driving lesson with a person you live with who is supervising you or a driving instructor. Find out more about COVID-19 rules for driving and transport.
