Learner Driver Drive Whilst Unaccompanied
A learner driver must be at least 16 years old and can only drive if accompanied by a driver who holds and has held a full license for at least one year for the vehicle that the learner is learning to drive. Violation of this rule would result to demerit points.
Learner drivers who accumulate four or more demerit points within a period of 12 months would be suspended from driving for three months. Furthermore, the learner’s eligibility for a provisional licence would be delayed.
The minimum length of time that a learner’s license must be held is 1 year within 3 years and the learner must have logged a compulsory 100 driving hours. Suspension from driving does not reflect well on a learner who seeks to apply for a provisional license. Hence, a learner must always strive to have a clean traffic record.
If you have been charged with a traffic offence or are under Police investigation, it is important that you seek legal advice.
