If you are still on your P’s, whatever stage you are at, it will continue. You will not go back to a provisional licence. Visit the DoT website for further info.

How long does it take to get a manual licence in Western Australia?

If you have a certain time-frame to obtain the C class upgrade due to your employer requirements, you need to let us know well in advance. It can be tough to find a suitable date and time for a driving test, especially if you work. We can find you suitable booking arrangements if you give us a reasonable notice. 

You should notify your employer of driving tests times. Monday to Friday between 7:05 AM and 3:40 PM. Driving tests are NOT conducted on weekends. You may need to take a day off. If you intend to take only a few hours off, make sure it’s not less than three hours. Particularly during the peak hour traffic, and busy periods in the DOT office if the licence needs to be renewed. 

More importantly, we will organize a PDA and guide you through the process. Also, we send all the necessary reminders and notifications.
