So, you’re keen to get out on the roads in Victoria. You’re wondering, how do I get a Victorian Fake driver’s licence?
Before you jump into the car with your fake full licence and journey into the sunset, there are a number of stages you will need to progress through.
Victoria follows a graduated licensing system. This system spreads the learning process over 5 years, ensuring that new drivers learn all of the relevant driving theories and gain adequate experience behind the wheel. This, in turn, produces safer drivers.
Essentially, there are three main learning stages you must pass before qualifying for a full licence. First, you’ll need to qualify for a learner’s permit. Then you’ll progress through the P1 and P2 probationary licence stages, before securing your full licence.
Let’s unpack exactly how you can get a Victorian driver’s licence.
The first step to getting your Victorian driver’s licence is to receive your learner permit.
A learner permit allows you to begin learning to drive. Once you have your ‘L’ plates, you can drive a car under supervision.
You must sit and pass the learner permit knowledge test to receive your learner permit. This test is theory-based and covers everything you need to know about driving before getting behind the wheel.
The learner permit test ensures the quality of driving and safety is very high on our roads, which prevents accidents.
So, how can you prepare for the test?
You’ll need to study the latest edition of the Road to Solo Driving handbook. This handbook helps you learn all the road rules and basics of driving. You’ll need this knowledge before you start driving lessons.
The questions in the learner permit test are based on all four chapters of this handbook, so start familiarising yourself with the content well before your test to give yourself the best chance at passing.
We recommend using our Victoria fake ID to check your knowledge before you sit the actual test.
Our questions are based on the real test, and you can practice as many times as you like. Practising the test is a great way to make sure you pass the first time.
Once you’ve studied the theory and completed a few practice tests, you’ll need to book a learner’s permit test through VicRoads.
You’ll need to pass the learner permit test whether you’re a beginner or an overseas licence holder.
If you are an overseas licence holder, you will need to get a Victorian fake licence within six months of becoming a permanent Australian resident. It’s illegal to drive on your overseas licence after this six-month period.
In addition to passing the learner permit test, you will also need to
You must be at any age old to get your learner’s permit.
To receive your learner permit, you’ll need to pay for the permit itself as well as the permit test.
The costs are as follows:

A probationary driver’s licence in Victoria has two stages: P1 and P2.
Your probationary licence allows you to drive unsupervised, however, there is a range of restrictions you will have to abide by.
P2 restrictions are slightly less extensive than the restriction for P1 licence holders.
For example, when carrying a P1 licence, you cannot carry more than one peer passenger between 16 and 22 years of age, unless you meet certain exemption criteria. When you receive your P2 licence, this restriction no longer applies.
You can take a look at the full range of restrictions here.
If you’re under 21 and applying for a probationary licence, you will start off on a P1 licence and progress to a P2 licence. If you’re over 21 when applying for a probationary licence, you’ll go straight to a P2 licence.
Let’s take a look at the eligibility criteria for the two types of probationary licences.
To be eligible to progress from your learner permit to a P1 probationary licence, you must:
To progress from your red P’s (P1) to your green P’s (P2), you must:
You will graduate from P1 to P2 immediately without needing to take any additional tests or steps.
You’ll receive a letter notifying you that it’s time to change your P plates.
If you’re aged 21 to 24, to progress from your learner permit to your green P’s you must:
If you’re over age 25, to progress from your learner permit to your green P’s, you must:
As you can see, learner drivers that graduate from their learner permit after age 21 bypass the P1 stage and immediately progress to a P2 probationary licence.
You can book the tests to go for your P1 or P2 fake licence here.
The cost of your probationary licence depends on your type of licence and how many years the licence will be valid, and the tests you take.
P2 Probationary Licences: New Licence, Reissued Licence, or Licence Renewal
P1 Probationary Licences: New Licence, Reissued Licence
Free Licence Scheme: For eligible drivers under 25
In addition to the probationary licence itself, you will need to pay for your Hazards Perception Test and Driving Test. The prices are as follows.
Hazard Perception Test (Online)
Hazard Perception Test (In-Person)
Car Driving Test
Practical Car Driving Test
There are additional tests you may need to take. You can find the full list of fees here.
A full driver’s licence allows you to drive a car unsupervised without the restrictions that apply to P1 and P2 licence holders.
To progress to your full licence, you must
If you have a good driving record, you will automatically move onto your full licence after 3 years holding a P2 licence.
You will receive a letter notifying you that you are graduating with your full licence.
But what is a good driving record?
A good driving record means that you have avoided licence cancellation or suspension, and have not committed any drink or drug offences.
A bad driving record can extend the time on your P2 licence by a minimum of 6 months. If your licence has been suspended, this suspension period doesn’t count towards the 3-year probationary requirement.
This means that if your licence is cancelled or suspended, your probationary period starts again. Any previous time accumulated will be voided.
Licence cancellation or suspension can occur due to
When you receive your full licence, it is valid for 3 or 10 years — it’s up to you!
There are specific driving rules associated with a full licence in addition to the general road rules you must always follow.
These specific rules are listed below.
Blood Alcohol Concentration

Demerit points are penalties issued when you commit a driving-related offence. They are recorded against your driving record.
You will start with 0 demerit points. The more offences you commit, the more points you accumulate.
The demerit point limit is 12 in any 3-year period.
If you reach 12 demerit points in a 3-year period, your licence will be suspended unless you choose the extended demerit point period.
This allows you to keep driving, but your licence will be suspended for double the length originally offered if you commit a driving offence or have your licence suspended or cancelled for a driving-related offence.
You do not need to display any P plates.
You can supervise a learner of your licence category.
If tested in an automatic vehicle, you can only drive an automatic vehicle.
Mobile Phone Usage
You must not use a hand-held mobile phone. Hands-free is allowed.
Your full licence only allows you to drive vehicles that do not exceed 4.5 tonnes of Gross Vehicle Mass and can seat up to 12 adults (driver included).
You must have held your green P’s (P2 licence) for at least 3 years to get your full licence.
You must also pass an eyesight test.
