Getting your Green Ps in New South Wales is a great accomplishment that finally gives you the freedom to drive and carry passengers, among many other things we’ll explain below. The Provisional P2 Licence can be obtained after you have held the Provisional P1 Licence for a minimum of 12 months.
Your Green Ps are issued for a period of 30 months once you pass the Hazard Perception Test.
You must hold the provisional P2 licence for a minimum of 24 months before you can apply for a full licence. However, you may upgrade the class of your vehicle to a maximum of Heavy Rigid (subject to specific requirements) during your P2-term.
The P2 licence has restrictions, just like the P1 licence. It’s only when you progress to a full licence that you can drive unrestricted.
Below are the restrictions for P2 licence holders in New South Wales:
Your P2 licence will be suspended or cancelled if you commit serious driving offences.
You can apply for a full and unrestricted licence once you have held the P2 licence for at least 24 months. The full licence will be suspended if you incur 13 or more demerit points in any 3-year period.
Note: You must have a correct and current licence to drive, and the licence must always be worn when driving. Driving without a licence, or letting an unlicensed driver drive your vehicle, may incur heavy penalties including fines.
