Driver licences for remote residents

Pay a fee and receive your provisional licence

After you pass the driving test, you will have to pay a provisional licence fee to be issued with your provisional licence (P plates).

If you are enrolled in the DriveSafe NT Remote course you will not be charged a fee.

You will be given a provisional licence with the same photo on your learner licence.

Under 25

You will receive a two-year provisional licence.

25 and over

You will receive a one-year provisional licence.

Conditions for all provisional drivers

Your provisional licence has driving conditions which include all of the following:

  • zero blood alcohol concentration
  • not exceeding 100km/h
  • displaying your P plates at the front and rear of the vehicle.

Once you have completed the required time on your provisional licence, you can then receive a full NT driver licence.
