  1. hey guys,
    sorry if this has been answered before and if its in the wrong section,
    just wanted to know where i can do a pre L's before going for my permit. i live in the western suburbs of melbourne (braybrook/sunshine area) and im not TOO bothered to drive out somewhere thats not too far.by experience is it worth doing it and how much will it cost? i would have gone and booked straight for the permit if i hadnt come across an inquiry about Pre L's, but it seems the smarter choice to do- thanks for the help guys, im a total noob here. :grin:

  2. I did mine @ Ridetek in Dandenong last year. I found them searching in the partners list and cause i am a member of NetRider it didn't cost me a thing. Saved me $60.00.

    You could try DECA in Altona Nth

  4. Rider Brothers, Calder Park
  5. My understanding is the Pre-Learners and Pre-Provisional are compulsory. Once you've done both, and you are a mature-aged driver (ie. 30 years and over, AND (the bit they forget to mention at the riders course, which I clarified with the RTA) - have held your NSW drivers license for 5 years or more), you can go straight to unrestricted after the Pre-Prov. course. Otherwise you have to have your P's for 12 months.
  6. Ummm

    Thats NSW, Vic has no pre anything.
    You just do your L test and 2 day course. They issue you the L's on the day.

    The full licence course is te same 3 months later. 2 Day course, test and then you get a P or full licence depending if you already have a full car licence.

    Also there is no mature age concession in Vic.
  7. Sucks to be in NSW then! :(
  8. ummm, not always.
    I did my L's in 3 hours, and that included watching the video and the written test.
    The P's test was also done in about 3 hours.
    Strech and I did our P's together, and celebrated with lunch in Marysville.
  9. i did my L's at HART in tullamarine, it was the 2 day course that took me from no experience to having my L's. There was a 1 day course available if you had some experience.

    very much recommend it, it was around $250 or something
  10. thanks heaps for the quick reply guys, much appreciated.!!
