Receive a full licence
After you have finished your P plate period, you will be eligible for a full Northern Territory driver licence.
You should receive a licence renewal notice about four weeks before your provisional licence (P Plates) expires.
Free licence for safe P-plate drivers
NT P-plate drivers who have no traffic infringements during their provisional licence period can receive a free 10-year open C class licence.
This licence is issued free of charge on licence renewal to go onto a full licence.
Unless you are entitled for the 10-year free licence for P-plate driving period, you must pay the full NT driver licence fee before you get your full driver licence.
You can then be issued with your full driver licence:
- in person at a police station
- or by mail.
