Was riding with someone today - not a Netrider - a stranger to me, but he had an L plate on. Examination of his licence revealed he's got a full, albeit restricted licence, not a learner permit. He swears he hasn't done a licence test, only a learner test. We described both tests, and he confirmed the learner test only. He didn't realise anything was wrong until we told him. How can this happen? Has Vicroads screwed up, or has his tester? Do you think Vicroads records would show a full licence too? ETA: And what would happen if the po pulled him over and did a licence check?
