Rewarding our responsible young drivers with a free 3 year licence.

You’re not eligible for a free licence if you’ve committed any of the following offences:

  • demerit point offences
  • drink driving
  • drug driving
  • speed offences
  • seat belt/occupant and restraint offences
  • unlicensed, unauthorised and disqualified driving
  • traffic offences causing death or injury (Crimes Act)
  • hit-and-run or accident-related offences
  • dangerous and reckless driving offences
  • fail to obey traffic signs/signals and roundabout offences
  • breach of novice driver/rider conditions
  • fatigue management offences
  • miscellaneous safety-related offences
  • commercial driver offences
  • disobeying police
  • unregistered vehicle use.

The Free Licence Scheme rewards young drivers who maintain a good driving record while on their Ps.

Young Victorian drivers (under 25 years old) with no traffic-related offences could be eligible for a free 3 year driver licence.

Am I eligible?

You’re eligible for a free 3 year licence if:

  • you got your P1 licence before you turned 21
  • you'll be under 25 when your probationary licence expires
  • you’ve had a Victorian probationary licence for 4 years (with a P1 for 12 months and P2 for 3 years)
  • you don't have any demerit points
  • you haven’t committed any traffic-related offences (see below for details)

You might still be eligible if your licence was suspended because of:

  • medical reasons
  • a Fines Victoria licence suspension
  • a court conviction for a non-driving related offence (i.e. Community Sentencing Reform).
