Your Ls in Victoria
All new drivers must apply for a Your LS to the Vic Roads department. To proceed with this, you must be 16 years of age or older and pass the driving test.
There are two different tests that will test the driver:
- Knowledge test
- Medical eye sight test
1 – First of all, the driver must be ready and study for the knowledge driving test. There are 32 questions in the exam and the pass score is 78%, (The driver will have to answer at least 25 questions correctly to pass.)
The exam is based on the “Road to Solo Driving” manual which is available to download from the official VicRoads website. To facilitate understanding, different languages are available.
2 – When the driver is ready to take the official test, he or she will need to schedule an appointment and visit the VicRoads customer service department to access the test.
There are several ways you can make your appointment:

- By phone – by calling 13 11 71.

A fee payment will be required which you can pay by VISA or MASTERCARD credit card, or even by Check or cash at some centers. Ask for more information before proceeding with the payment.
3 – Once you have made your appointment, you will need to download the “your ls permit application form” from the official VicRoads website and complete it in capital letters.
