Changes to graduated licensing system

Too many young Tasmanians are being killed or seriously injured on our roads. The Tasmanian Government is committed to saving young lives.

That’s why we have improved Tasmania’s Graduated Licensing System. Drivers are most at risk when they first get their Ps and start driving solo. The new system will help reduce the risk.

Young drivers will now have more on-road driving experience and skills to keep them and their passengers safe.

Most importantly, these improvements will help reduce crashes involving new drivers and save lives.
