From October 2017 the Department of Transport announced changes to the Western Australian Driver's Licence Application Process.  Improved processes to obtain a provisional licence will better prepare applicants and result in safer novice drivers.  Download the updated Keys for Life facilitator manual pages below resulting from these new changes.  An updated complete resource will be available in 2019.
