Booking the test
When booking the test, choose a time that’s convenient for you and the person taking you to the test (if applicable).
Make sure your test won’t clash with school or work commitments, as you want to be able to focus on the test. It's a good idea to book your test in the morning (before you go to work or school). This time means you won’t have to worry about school or work and can take time to prepare without distraction. If you book a morning test, there will also be no pressure to finish before the testing facility closes. You can check the opening hours of your nearest Transport and Motoring Service Centre here.
Before the test
It’s important to get a good night’s sleep, stay hydrated, and make sure you eat before the test. Although not physically taxing, tests are often mentally draining and you want to be at your best to give yourself the best chance to your pass on your first attempt.
You should arrive early and use the extra time to revise and do some practice tests. We recommend bookmarking our practice tests page in your phone’s browser so you can test yourself as you wait for the test.
Make sure you’re aware of what you need to bring to the test and the test and licence fees you will have to pay. These administrative details can be found on the Department of Transport and Main Roads website.
Sitting the test
When you sit the test, try to remain calm and take your time. There is no time limit, so you can take as long as you want. Read the question and each option carefully. Even when you come across a question you’ve answered in practice tests, you should still take your time and choose carefully after reading the question and options in full.
