Goverment grants extension for expiring learner and restricted licences

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 5 November 2019

The Government is giving 144,000 drivers an automatic two-year extension for licenses which are due to expire between 1 December 2019 and December 2021.

The reprieve applies to drivers with a current five-year learner or restricted car or motorbike licence.

The expiry dates are linked to a law change in 2014 that introduced a five-year time limit on restricted or learner licences.

Julie Anne Genter is the Associate Transport Minister.
