Applying for a Learners’ Permit with a Keys for Life Certificate

In Western Australia, the Department of Transport Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS)and selected Australia Post Offices, process Learner’s Permit applications between 8:30am – 3:45pm, Mondays to Fridays. Students presenting a valid* Keys for Life certificate during the Learner's Permit application process will be eligible to receive the following exemptions from Transport DVS:

  • An exemption from undertaking the Computerised Theory Test (CTT) at the DVS centre.
  • An exemption from paying the CTT fee of $18.90, reducing the overall cost of the Learner’s Permit fee to $92.90 (as at January 2016).
  • An exemption from presenting one of the five Proof of Identity (POI) forms.

*A valid Keys for Life certificate is one that is current (certificates are valid for 2 years), correctly completed by the Keys for Life facilitator, and the student’s name is exactly the same as their other legal identification (eg birth certificate). The certificate does not need to include middle names.


Replacing Certificates

If you lose your Keys for Life certificate contact your school (or agency) to arrange a replacement. A replacement certificate is valid for two years, commencing from the original date of issue.
