To check if you are ready, you can do a free practice theory test online.
You will need to pay a $20 fee for sitting the test. If you don't pass, you will need to pay $20 each time you resit the test. You will be told how to pay the fee once your application is approved.
Once you complete the theory test, you will then need to fill in the online CPV driver licence application.
