Free Licence Scheme

The free licence scheme rewards young drivers who maintain a good driving record while on their probationary licence. If you've maintained a good driving record on your Ps, you may be eligible to apply for a free 3 year driver licence. Find out more below.

Am I eligible for a free licence?

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

  • 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 have a clean driving record (you haven’t incurred any traffic related offences while on your Ps) 

You may still be eligible to apply if your licence was suspended due to:

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

For more information, call 13 11 71.
