Driver testing and COVID-19

In response to the latest health advice and risks associated with COVID-19, the following changes have been made:

  • Driver testing across NSW has been postponed for a minimum period of 2 months. This change comes into effect immediately, and applies to all practical driver assessments conducted by Service NSW.
    • Note: This does not apply to assessments conducted via the Heavy Vehicle Competency Based Assessment Program or any other assessment provider outside of Service NSW.
  • Aged driving assessments will be deferred for a minimum period of 3 months.
  • Holders of a current overseas licence who have become permanent residents now have 6 months to convert to a NSW licence.

If you believe you have an urgent need for your driving test to be conducted, or you'd like more detailed information, visit Driver testing and COVID-19.
