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.
